JJ's Hidden Gems

We dive into JJ's wonderfully wacky 'Every Little Helper' to reveal all the hidden details of this incredible work.

As the name suggests, this is an obvious play on a very well known supermarkets famous slogan - but with a 'Willy Wonka' style twist! As we know, Wonka's endearing little helpers are affectionately named 'Oompa Loompa's' and you will spot one peeking out behind the main man himself!

There are also a number of references to the films nutty story line, with probably the most recognisable being the copious amounts of sugar and chocolate that are being sent through the Self-Scanner, and if you look closely you'll also spot a 'Wonka Bar' hiding in his shopping basket too. As always, JJ injects a truck load of humour into this work with mentions to the classic movie, including a 'Golden Ticket' being rejected as payment by the machine and a poster on the left alerting staff that Wonka is only allowed to buy a limited number of the sweet stuff (He's obviously cleared their stock out more than once, huh?!)

The box of 'Blueberry Wheats' will serve as a reminder to scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, where Violet Beauregarde turns into a blueberry, the colour tv notice which should call to mind the scene when Mike TeaVee gets zapped into a television, and there is even an 'Everlasting Gobstopper' appearing down in the right hand corner!

Some will spot that Wonka is wearing a 'Tufty Club' badge too - which is actually JJ's badge from when he was a child himself, and features of a previous work 'Please Stand By'. The Dairy Milk poking out from Wonka's pocket might also be shedding a light on the confectionery giant Cadbury's - who are basically the real life equivalent to Wonka's Chocolate Factory! Actually, Roald Dahl was greatly inspired by Cadbury's when he wrote the book, which led to this film and it's storyline.

We absolutely love that JJ kept it classic and paid homage to the incredible Gene Wilder - everyone will remember their childhood watching him play the cooky Willy Wonka, and now that memory can live on by securing your very own 'Every Little Helper' today!!
