Witness The Glorious Magnificent Rickmobile

by on May 5, 2017

There have been many milestones on the road to automobile perfection. First there was the idea to replace two horses with a combustion engine. Then there was the invention of windshield wipers to allow drivers to see in the rain without crashing. Then, for a long time, nothing of value really happened. Until today, when the pinnacle of perfection rolled off the assembly line, the apex of car evolution: the RICKMOBILE.

The smartest man in the galaxy has used his mad scientist knowhow to transmogrify himself into a car, and now he’s zipping across America, belching at other cars and consuming all the booze in each city. And look who’s hitching a ride inside: TINY RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!

It’s the Adult Swim Don’t Even Trip Roadtrip, and if you catch the Rickmobile in one of the 48 currently scheduled stops across America, you could walk away with some exclusive Rick & Morty or Adult Swim merchandise. In the meantime, you can follow the Rickmobile’s road trip on its Instagram account, where beautiful locations shots are blended with Rickisms like “Retrofitting an Earth C-137 GPS with intergalactic maps took way less time than I thought it would,” “Look out for me on the road, I’ll be the one swerving into oncoming traffic,” and of course, “Road trips are dumb, but at the end of the day, everything we do is meaningless.”

Here’s the full list; look for the location nearest you.

    BWAAAH. It’s in Florida almost a month after I’ll already have left there. On the bright side, it’s in Falls Church around the same time I’m planning on visiting the DC area for a film shoot. So I’m hoping I can pay a visit then :).
