    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!

    There is evidence the prize winners were selected as they represented character archetypes corresponding to prepared Oompa Loompa songs and Mr. Slugworth also had access to their locations to speak to them before arrival at the factory. Note: I figured this out as a kid !

    The whole thing was rigged even more than what you say. Charlie was pegged from the very start. The others were chosen (each representing a type of poor/unworthy behavior) to be an object lesson to Charlie before he could inherit the factory. The ride in the glass elevator explains it somewhat vaguely but it's pretty much all there.

    The part about the candy man being in on the whole “rigged thing” is disproven by how he reacts in the book, in that he reacted like it was the best day in his life. That obviously could be acting but I see it unlikely that would be true because that doesn’t seem like something Roald Dahl would do. But then again the fake Sugworth didn’t exist in the book so don’t listen to me.

    P.S. the book has a sequel and I might even like that one more

    I'm pretty sure they say Mike TV hacked the Wonka distribution data so he wouldn't be included in the probability calculation. That also implies Wonka kept records of where the tickets were sent, and the locations were chosen almost certainly not at random.

    Pitch for Film Theory : I love the Show New girl, could you make a video about how does one play the game True American ( the game the character play in the show) . We can see the characters play this game many times through the show, which seems long and complicated, it is a made -up game but we never really know what are the rules and how do you play it, could you make a video theorizing how do you play the game?.
    PS: I love your channel if you see this please say hi :).

    Now you have to do a theory on how much Wonka would need to pay out for lawsuits if it got out that he rigged the contest. I imagine there were loads of people that bought thousands of candy bars from Wonka under the pretense that they were also purchasing a chance to win a once in a lifetime lottery. There must be some legal ramifications if that got found out.
