Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three



Come with me and you'll be
In a world of pure imagination



Take a look and you'll see
Into your imagination



We'll begin with a spin
Traveling in the world of my creation
What we'll see will defy
Explanation

Always remember that the former President was dumber than the dumbest person you've ever met by a wide margin


This is exactly how anyone would/should feel if they were forced to dress like an Oompa Loompa for their job.

(Welp I posted my thread too late, but have this bit about the organizers)

BBC News posted:

A post from organisers, House of Illuminati, in January described the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-themed event as where "dreams become reality".

Wait, the organizers are called House of Illuminati? Let's see their website:

quote:

Welcome to the House of Illuminati, a realm where fantasy and reality converge to create unparalleled immersive experiences. Our journey is fueled by a passion for blending art, technology, and storytelling into unforgettable events. From avant-garde performances to grand interactive galas, each event is a meticulously crafted adventure, designed to evoke wonder and inspire the imagination. At the House of Illuminati, we’re not just organizing events; we’re crafting extraordinary experiences that linger in your memories, inviting you to explore the extraordinary and step beyond the ordinary.


Huh, a bunch of AI art and a cookie-cutter filler mission statement. Surely they gotta have some actual material to back it up? Oh hey some photos of their past events:



Yep, those sure are some warehouses draped with slinky's. How long have they been doing this hustle?


Oh.
