Weird things happen everyday, but there’s nothing weirder–and creepier–than when someone or something correctly predicts someone’s death. Now that Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was killed in Sirte Thursday, a portion of the 1987 sitcom “Second Chance,” starring Matthew Perry, might be taken more seriously.
According to AOL TV, the show, set in 2011, features a character named Charles (Kiel Martin) who dies in a hovercraft accident (because everyone in 2011 drives hovercrafts) and is sent to be judged by St. Peter. St. Peter finds him to be neither bad enough for Hell nor good enough for Heaven, so Charles is then sent back to Earth to make sure his teenage self (Perry) turns out to be a better person. However, before St. Peter meets with Charles, Gaddafi meets with St. Peter, full of bullet holes. Sounds familiar to Thursday, when cell phone video and still pictures showed the leader with a gun pointed at his head by rebels.
It’s a coincidence to be sure (the year was right, but the date mentioned in the show–July 29–is totally wrong), but it’s a crazy, weird coincidence that unsettles you on a certain level. If you want to be unsettled, go below the post to check out the Gaddaffi section of the video, which starts two minutes and 20 seconds in. You can also check the scene out at AOL.
