Seven Gene Wilder Moments That Are Even Better Than The 'Condescending Wonka' Meme

Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory star Gene Wilder has died at the age of 83, as a result of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. A tremendously gifted comic actor, he made classic films such as Blazing Saddles and The Producers, but a new generation will no doubt remember Wilder as much for “Condescending Wonka”, a meme based around a still taken from Willy Wonka… First emerging around 2011, the meme’s premise is as delicious as chocolate and as simple as the internet itself: identify someone's brag/humblebrag/clichéd statement, overlay it on the still, end on a sarky remark.
