    For everyone saying the factory isn’t in America, it actually IS American, believe it or not. The movie goes to great lengths to try and make the location ambiguous (nonsense monetary symbols, ambiguous coins, a German shoot location but everyone speaking English) but the television coverage of the Golden Ticket search we see Charlie watching always references “here in America.” And in the book, he finds a “dollar” in the gutter. So signs point heavily to Wonka’s being an American company.

    Better theory wonka knew those kids would die ,the boat after the chocolate river incident didn’t have extra seats for the kid who was sucked up knowing that the kid would go missing and the clip looks like he pushed the kid and later a car in the film had even less seats. Wonka wanted those kids to get into accidents

    It’s super weird that I unknowingly watched Willy-Wonka and the chocolate factory like 3 hours before this theory. ‘Twas Fate.

    I always skip a minute into the video because the openers are really painful to watch.

    I appreciate that you’re trying to hold him accountable to OSHA standards. It’s all well and good. But the fact that the ORIGINAL book that this is based off was written by Ronald Dahl and his experiences with chocolate companies as a boy (in roughly the 1920’s) makes the OSHA standards moot. (As OSHA wasn’t founded until April 28, 1971)

    Because if this IS America. We’d be talking about the time leading up to, or early into the Great Depression.

    You could also argue the fact on the “Time the movie was released” which was only a few months after OSHA was established, meaning they’d have to completely reproduce the entire movie to fit to those newly outlined standards.

    So while I enjoy that you’re not taking the “Willy Wonka is a murderer” stance on a lot of this… I don’t really feel like you had a leg to stand on, holding it to OSHA standards.

    I thought it was going to be about how Willy Wonka died in Infinity War.

    you should ad an OSHA violation counter

  15. Beta Shadow says:

    Gotta hand it to MatPat for those clever uses of borders throughout the video.

    These weren’t meant for just decorative effect, but to thwart the automatic Content ID system for taking the video down, despite its eligibility for fair use.

    I don’t really believe this theory. There’s another one out there that says that Wonka is the final regeneration of The Doctor. Think about it: he has a flying contraption that can go anywhere. Nobody except him knows where the Oompa Loompas are from, he has an odd sense of fashion and a witty yet sarcastic sense of humor, he’s seen different kinds of creatures and uses various if not unknown technology

    When I was twelve, I imagined a sequel where Wonka, Charlie and all his family lived happily ever after until the four kids’ parents came back with lawyers and an enormous fine not even Wonka would be able to pay. So they escaped, leaving three quarters of the Oompa Loompas behind, in a big underground chocolate drilling machine and then returned to fight back with witchcraft.
    Then I read the sequel, Charlie and the Glass Elevator, and I was completely disappointed.

    Ants will enjoy the factory especially the chocolate room

    Wasn’t this film set in England? If so there was no OSHA in 1971 there. I love this theory all the same.
