Notice how the caption is unrelated to Willy Wonka, isn't anything close to something Willy Wonka ever says, and can just be inserted anywhere irrespective of it's relevance to Willy Wonka.
The world is astounded when Willy Wonka, for years a recluse in his factory, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of the factory, shown all the secrets of his amazing candy, and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate.
Unlike the 2005 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory realises that Charlie is too perfect to be the main protagonist and wisely makes the decision to have a more flawed character in Willy Wonka as the lead.
