On behalf of Rick and Morty fans every I’d like to let Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland know how much I despise them for what they just posted to Adult Swim Australia’s YouTube account. In what fans believed to be an exclusive peek at the season 3 opening scene, instead…Rick Rolled (better yet Rick and Morty rolled).
On a serious note, the teaser is nothing short of brilliant, filled with scenes from the previous – and possibly some from the upcoming – season(s) spliced together to sing out the song lyrics of the famous troll song performed by Rick Astley, “Never Gonna Give You Up.” Fan’s have been eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series, especially after the events that occurred at the end of the second season.
For the less informed, Rick and Morty began as a crudely drawn (and creepy) parody of Back to the Future’s Marty Mcfly and Doc Brown, on Youtube as Doc and Mharti. Rick and Morty eventually got picked up by Adult Swin and premiered on December 2, 2013, and picked up a cult following ever since.
Now it’s been since October 4, 2015, well over a year, since the last episode of the hit Adult Swim cartoon, and fans have begun to worry they might be able to read Winds of Winter before seeing Season 3. But even this senseless trolling is a sign that Harmon and company are aware of that, as the fact that they poke fun at themselves for it means they are still the same goofballs they’ve always been.
Nonetheless, patience must prevail, as there is no doubt that the Rick and Morty team are working as hard as possible, while simultaneously releasing the best possible product they can. For more things, Rick and Morty and all your Nerdy News be sure to check back to the site frequently.
