Willy Wonka Experience Hilariously Recreated In Animal Crossing

  • The cute style and variety of props in

    make it perfect for humorous recreations.



Willy Wonka has recently been trending for all the wrong reasons, and an Animal Crossing: New Horizons recreation of the event that cast his name into disrepair captures all that’s equal parts sad and funny about it. Although Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory is intended to be even more wondrous than it is unsettling, a Glasgow Wonka-themed event missed out on the note about the whimsy. What was supposed to be an exciting destination for kids turned out to be a mostly empty warehouse with some amusingly pitiful attempts at decoration, and images of the affair are hard to forget.

X (formerly Twitter) user Haztecamarera took it upon themselves to recreate pictures from the event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the most recent entry in Nintendo’s popular social simulation series. Their takes on the material make use of the game’s costumes and props to capture all the visualized disappointment, just in a significantly cuter form.

The thread contains seven sets of comparison images along with one short video, with content ranging from the hazy Oompa-Loompa corner to the actor playing Wonka himself.

There is an update and a new DLC for Animal Crossing: New Horizons that allows players to further customize their island and interact with new NPCs.

The Glasgow Wonka Event Is Perfect In Animal Crossing

Although Animal Crossing is largely known for its cutesy appeal, it’s also perfect for capturing uncanny subjects like the Willy Wonka experience. Even if they’re not exact replicas, the game’s share of whimsical party items and seasonal decorations make great stand-ins for the props littered about the event. A Bunny Day arch replicates the rainbow entryway in the middle of the warehouse floor, and one of the variety of teddy bears available in Animal Crossing:New Horizons is a surprisingly accurate match for an oversized model of a bright yellow gummy bear.

The video included in the thread highlights the villain of the show, a devious chocolate maker referred to as The Unknown, who apparently lives in the walls of Wonka’s off-kilter factory. The Animal Crossing: New Horizons version is considerably more charming than the masked entity at the actual event, and the Scare reaction added in a New Horizons Halloween event comes across as more cute than creepy. If kids could only have visited the Animal Crossing version of the Wonka experience in real life, they’d almost undoubtedly have had a much better time.

This is far from the first time that an Animal Crossing: New Horizons player has recreated an uncomfortable event to humorous effect, with a recreation of The Office‘s dinner party episode serving as one previous notable example. It’s nice to see that the community is as passionate as ever several years out from the game’s release, and it’s a good indication of the enduring popularity of one of Nintendo’s most off-beat franchises. The Glasgow Willy Wonka experience has spread a lot of amusement over the internet, and the Animal Crossing: New Horizons version of it is definitely a major highlight.
