In an alternate universe, Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ is released today. In it, one of the children is a social media and YouTube personality, producing daily vlogs and popular music covers and obsessed with follower counts, pageviews and ad revenue. Attempting to record a video liveblogging the tour of Wonka’s factory, something strictly forbidden by the rules of the tour, the child manages to fall into the nougat thresher. Wielding rusty and stained medical equipment, the Oompa Loompas gather around the scene of the tragic yet delicious accident and sing this song, as child-infused chocolate bars roll down the conveyor to be shipped to every nation. The world eats you, they chant, the world eats you. The tour continues.
