Pizza is a SANDWICH?! ►
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a gem in the history of movies. It stands out not just for the acting and the main story, but all of the things you can find hiding beneath the surface. It is a surprisingly ominous movie and the character of Willy Wonka is at the center of the horror. We've talked about Wonka using the Golden Tickets to pass off his OSHA violations onto the winner, but what if that was not the only trick he's trying to pull? What else is Willy Wonka up to? Watch to find out!

You should of mentioned the fact that people had TVs so we at least know the film is set in or around the late 40s or 50s. Other than that, this is one of your best videos.

It is EXTREMELY LIKEY that Willy Wonka fixed the entire contest:
1) In the book, one of Charlie's grandfathers worked for Wonka before he the workers with the Oompa Loompa [due to theft of formulas, etc.]
2) It is VERY likely that Wonka knew Charlie's grandfather, and all former workers under surveillance [knowing Wonka's character].
3) Wonka would have learned about Charlie's character from these observations.
4) It is not beyond presumption that the candy store owner [depicted in the movie] was one of Wonka's agents, and Charlie was chosen from the start.
5) Watch carefully at the Candy Store Owner, when he presents Charlie the bar with the winning ticket.
6) Look at Wonka, when Charlie gives the Everlasting Gobstopper back to him. It was like he was expecting Charlie to pass this last test all along, as if he already knew Charlie's character.

This was a really cool and very well researched video, but I gotta say I disagree with using coke as your Wonka Company stand-in. Especially because you then excluded countries based on Coke's specific circumstances. I feel like it would've been better to go with Hershey's, but just assume they had the distribution power of a large company LIKE Coke.

I think it’s really worth noting that a promotional thing like the golden tickets are often just regionalised. So unless the film states otherwise - I’ve never seen the film bcoz my older sister was scared of willy wonka, but I’ve listened to the audio book, but that was 10+ yrs ago - then it’s likely to just be an American thing. Possibly even down to a specific coast!
Haven’t finished the video so if MatPat says this then do ignore me

Oh mad, they’re German and English winners too. Ignore us lads. But still tho, would Africa have wonka bars? Do they have Cadbury or Hershey’s? Idk, never been, but worth asking

I'm confused as to how the newscasts determine the movie takes place in America. Two of the contestants are from the united states, and considering the money they use is defiantly not US dollars, I always presumed it was in the UK since the currency seemed to be British pounds iirc.

The reason why Charlie teacher is brithsh is because when Margot fanctar pm she made so job tittles had move to teach American becase affter alot of anmecan techers whent war in ww2. So this slot teachers durring 1970s it was start vertnam war so Britain had send more teachers over the pond to tech anmecam kids the problaty of war and other maths this why Charlie teacher is brithsh.
