Watch Pogo's Sweet Willy Wonka Remix (Video)

Rabid fans of music, Disney, or YouTube may already be familiar with Pogo.

The music producer and remix artist is know for his incredibly watchable video edits that combine the music, voices, and sounds from beloved childhood classics like Sesame Street, Alice in Wonderland, and Mary Poppins into something new and fascinating.

Pogo (AKA Nick Bertke) explains his process on his YouTube page. "I use Adobe Audition to record the sounds I use as instruments, FL Studio or Ableton to compose depending on the project, and finally Adobe Premiere to edit clips from the DVD or Blu-ray into a video for the track. The whole process takes me about 2 - 3 weeks."

Just in time for our favorite candy-obsessed holiday (Valentine's Day), Pogo has released a new Wonka-inspited video. And by Wonka, we're not talking about the Johnny Depp catastrophe. We mean the classic 1971 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, starring Gene Wilder as the mad, loveable, and slightly scary Wonka.

So, take a break from whatever you're doing and visit for a moment with Charlie, Grandpa Joe, Veruca Salt, Willy Wonka, and the oompa loompas in a world of pure imagination. No golden ticket, required.
