Of all the strange things to happen Tuesday, there's at least one that's a pleasant surprise. Celebrating their "fan appreciation month," Screen Junkies has released an Honest Trailer for Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The weirdest wrinkle? The video features Michael Bolton — the actual singer and not the character from Office Space — singing parody versions of the film's classic songs.
As usual, the trailer is pretty accurate. It opens by welcoming viewers to a film that is "pure children's wish fulfillment, but still wasn't afraid to scar you for life." The trailer exposes Wonka's anger management issues and how Grandpa Joe was a first class swindler.
Then Bolton jumps in and starts singing songs about how Wonka's factory had some serious health code violations. The river of chocolate and blood? Shoes in the candy? He's right. It's pretty damn gross in there.
