Willy Wonka Chocolate Nightmare

Cops Called to "Willy Wonka Experience" in Old Factory

In Glasgow, Scotland, an event called “Willy’s Chocolate Experience” turned out to be a major disappointment for families. The organization behind the event, House of Illuminati, had promoted it as an immersive experience based on the Timothée Chalamet Wonka reboot. The AI advertisements showcased lollipop forests, jellybean waterfalls, flying horses, giant mushrooms, and other fantastical scenes, promising “a place where chocolate dreams become reality”.

However, when hundreds of parents arrived with their families, they were met with a gutted factory—a sparsely decorated warehouse with dirty windows, exposed air conditioning systems, and a couple of plastic candy canes strewn about on bare concrete floors. The “whimsical” Oompa Loompas turned out to be struggling actors frantically reciting scripts handed out the night before the event. Some actors even had to improvise with props that weren’t present when they arrived.

Customer Stuart Sinclair, who drove two hours with his children to attend the event, described it as an “absolute con.” House of Illuminati eventually offered full refunds to 850 customers and canceled the event after just one day.

 

It seems the real-world Willy Wonka experience fell far short of the AI-fueled promises. Perhaps the lesson here is that not all chocolate dreams are created equal! In a world with AI be on the look out for scams and fakes.
