This Disaster Of A “Willy Wonka Experience” Is The Best Thing On The Internet Right Now

I just can’t stop reading about this absolute disaster.

Photos are going around of an absolutely hilarious scene in Glasgow, Scotland that was billed as a Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory experience, but ended up looking more like Willy Wonka’s meth lab.

The event was put on by a group called House of Illuminati, and advertised as “Willy’s Chocolate Experience,” which honestly should have been the first sign that something was wrong. “Willy’s Chocolate Experience” sounds like a link to a video that you don’t want children to click. And how do we know they’re talking about Willy Wonka? That could mean any Willy.

And another big red flag? All of the images used to promote the event were clearly AI-generated, along with a website that was filled with typos.

Ah yes, who can pass up a day of…catgacating, cartchy tuns and exarserdray lollipops.

Well despite the event basically being one giant red flag, apparently plenty of parents still shelled out the £35 (approximately $45) for a day of magical fun in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory.

And…surprise, it was a complete disaster.

The event was held in what appears to be a warehouse that was sparsely decorated with Wonka-themed props, a background that was just hanging up on the wall, and characters who looked like they were out of some twisted horror remake of the original Willy Wonka.

I mean, just look at this…

Incredible. My favorite part is the sad looking Oompa Loompa, who clearly realizes that she messed up by agreeing to the job but is just trying to get through it the best she can while dressed as a slutty chocolate factory worker.

Oh wait, I lied. Actually my favorite part is this character who definitely wasn’t part of the original Willy Wonka story and was just scaring children as he popped out from behind a cheap mirror from Walmart.

Love a good remake.

And as more information has come out about the whole disaster, it’s become clear just what a sh*tshow it was from the very beginning. The actor who was cast to play Willy Wonka (who admits that he had no business being cast as Willy Wonka), says that he received a 15-page AI generated script the day before the event and was told to memorize it the night before:

Oh, and the AI-generated script for the event has also been leaked, and it’s as incredible as you would imagine:

And at the end of the day, the children were treated to a bounty of candy and sweet treats.

Of course that’s not true. They got one jelly bean and half a cup of lemonade.

I seriously can’t stop laughing. It just keeps getting better. Honestly, I would pay $45 in a heartbeat just to experience this trainwreck for myself. It’s all about the experience, right?

Well apparently parents weren’t happy, and even called the police when they showed up and saw what a scam this event was. And the mastermind behind the disaster has finally come out and issued a statement admitting that the event “fell short” of expectations:

“I’m really shocked the event had fallen short of the expectations of people on paper. My vision of the artistic rendition of a well-known book didn’t come to fruition. For that, I am absolutely truly & utterly sorry.”

Understatement of the century, my guy.

The event has been compared to the ill-fated Fyre Festival, and sparked a ton of memes as people from around the world get a kick out of just what a mess the whole thing was:

Obviously the event was canceled once people saw what a failure it was, and refunds were (supposedly) issued to everybody who bought tickets.

But at this point, these folks are a part of history. And it seems like that’s well worth the $45.
