Film Theory: Willy Wonka RIGGED the Golden Tickets!

Check out Food Theory! ►
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!

    I know i sound like a nerd but you wouldn’t need to use removal, because 1 person could (while not likely) get 2 tickets.

    i know this might be random but can you do a theory on Battington's lost VHS tapes. It looks like a normal channel until you filter the videos to their most popular, then you should be able find most of their "lost VHS tapes". I've seen channels reacting to the VHS tapes and I've seen most of them myself with my some of friends. the VHS tapes seem too have a hidden story behind them and i want you to check it out. i don't know and i don't care what theory you do, i just really want you to do a theory about the channel. here is the link to the channel: us-state.comvideos. I'm sorry if this comment sounds pushy or something, I've never commented before TwT.

      I've watched most of the lost VHS tapes, and I also think there is a hidden story/ message behind them. I think there is more to the lost VHS tapes then some creepy toys and figures! There seems to be a storyline/ plot to them but I'm not completely sure. I hope Matpat makes a video on them it would make my day knowing the truth behind these creepy videos, tho I've watched most of them I still have some questions.

    one thing you forgot to consider (or maybe just didnt mention) would be that not every person even bought any candy bars for example Charlie has a family of 7 but they only buy 3 bars in total now in poorer areas not only would there be less people who buy large amounts but also less people who would buy any at all, so that would probably increase the percentage as well

    Dear Mat pat: Please make a film theory on the magic school bus. if you really dig deep, there is stuff about Mrs frizzles parents, (they were pirates) and explain to me why she choose to be a school teacher when she could be saving the universe like Dr. who! I mean her bus can travel through time, shrink itself, and get to mars in less then a minute!! who knows if Mrs Frizzle secretly is a time lord saving the universe from unknown dangers. Every trip, it seams like she has an encounter with someone who knows her. PS. I know it might be a lot of watching kid tv show episodes. so I could feed info on Reddit free of charge as a loyal film theorist. and I wouldn't mind getting a shout out if you decided to do an episode about this ;)

    I used to make film theories with friends when I was at high school and when it came to Willy Wonka's factory we definitely likened it to coca cola, not only because it made sense in terms of economics but if you just look at what Coca Cola represented as a corporation in terms of politics of the world. So yeah that's an amazing guess

    The idea that Wonka Riggs it becomes even more clear in the remake. We see him place the tickets himself by hand. Which implies he knows where they're going, and when the fake ticket is announced its Wonka that discredits it, the only way he would know without seeing it, is if he knows where the tickets are and who they're supposed to go to.

    The movie pretty clearly implied fate had chosen the kids.It's kind of like Santa magic, he didn't directly control it but he works directly with the aspects of fate and judgement. There are some interesting, dark undertones to this film though.

    My first thoughts in the episode First WTF is this for a question Second : how will you answer that I am From germany and we belive It increases racism over all ethnic groups, if such statistics are even available. So we don't have that, and we already have a whole country out. I won't go any further, because the question is impossible to answer in my eyes. I would like to point out that I find the question politically uncorrect. Let a german tell you, that these questions are more dangerous for everyone, than I think you realize.

    Well, it's easy to assume Wonka would have known which cases went where. They placed the tickets, tracked where that case ended up going, and sent Slugworth to intercept the winners. It's also not crazy to assume that the legalize required that only children could be the "winners". We can exclude Slugworth intercepting Charlie so quickly as dramatic for drama's sake. If he was watching that store specifically, and jumped in a car, he could have gotten in front of a running child.
