Three Ways the “Dudes Be Like Willy Wonka” Meme Got Started
The Roll Safe meme first emerged on Twitter in 2017, quickly gaining popularity and becoming a popular way to slap someone around online. The concept is based upon the British mockumentary “Hood Documentary” and features Kayode Ewumi’s image pointing to a temple. It is a fun way to make fun of bad decisions, bad thinking, and Ariana Grande’s song became a meme.
Willy Wonka meme
While you’ve probably heard the “Dudes are like Willy Wonka” meme before, did you know that the “Willy Wonka” is actually a real person? The iconic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory chocolate-maker became a meme and an iconic character. The character is not at all condescending when he asks the children what his secret machine does, but it sure is fun to watch.
In this week’s meme, actor Timothee Chalamet took on the role of Willy Wonka, who made his debut in the 1971 musical film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The film was a huge box office success and featured the Oompa Loompa song, and Timmy Tim video. Chalamet is also noteworthy for his portrayal of Willy Wonka. Gene Wilder, a former actor in Willy Wonka, played the role of the character in the 1971 film. He’s already committed to playing this iconic character again in a sequel to the movie, which is scheduled for 2023.

But what makes the original version so memorable? Is it just the movie’s zany protagonist or does it also apply to everyday life? Below are three ways that the “don’t speak it” meme became a viral Internet sensation.
Willy Wonka’s “weird but okay” flex
