Meth lab oompa loompa is my favorite meme of the year so far. It juxtaposed so well to the wonder and silliness of the movies, lmao.

The best part about this event was the new Wonka lore of The Unknown, an evil chocolate maker who lives in the walls

Me: gestures to this article

Imagine hosting an event so lame that it makes international news solely because of how incredibly lame it was. Just damn.

this isn't so much a failure of AI generated anything. it's a failure by the organisers to have the budget needed to do it. this was 100% human fuck up. So weird the article tries to spin it that it's somehow an AI fail.

The AI part is what makes this fuck up special and international news.

We are used to human fuck ups, but a in person event where the organizers where so lazy that they used AI to create the content and that it sucked is something novel.

AI generated pictures, blogs and books are old news, generated in person events is new.

The head guy self published something like a dozen AI generated books that he's selling on Amazon too

So the script called for some of the Wonka's to use vacuums, but they didn't have vacuums, so they had to improvise.

But they managed to pull out a chemistry set.

What the fuck is happening.

This whole event reads more like an artist trying to showcase the dangers of machine learning models. It's honestly hilarious to see how people just fell for some pretty pictures that were clearly generated with AI and ended up at an oompa loompa meth lab.

People going in expecting a fun adventure with Willy Wonka and having a horrible time because it was created by an asshole trying to teach them a lesson...sounds like the plot of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

This feels like an episode of The Apprentice. Lord Sugar (appropriate!): “Willy Wonka? More like Willy Wanker.” Cut to sweaty Project Manager about to be fired.

More like...

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"

"Charlie Kelly and the Chocolate Factory"

Dennis uses it to play a sexy Wonka, Dee gets attacked for use of 'orange face', Mac has a nightmare experience in the haunted tunnel, and Charlie and Frank accidentally end up cooking meth for kids.
