When you think about the infamous TV show Rick and Morty there are loads of classic moments that will pop into mind.
But few will top the outrageous, bizarre and brilliant episode that is Pickle Rick. It shows off just how resourceful and weird Rick is in the show after he transforms himself into a pickle that can run around, before it climaxes with a shown down with a mysterious man holed up in a mansion.
Well, if you’re a fan of that episode then you’ll be delighted to know that Pickle Rick and Pringles are teaming up.
The ‘Once You Pop You Can’t Stop’ company has decided to make a limited offering of pickle flavoured crisps for their American customers.
I know, I know – it is a damn shame they’re not being sold around the world but that’s just the hand we’ve been dealt.
The new flavour will be doled out just before the Super Bowl next year, which will be held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida on February 3.
Gareth Maguire, senior director of marketing for Pringles said in a statement: “We want to do something completely new for the brand for the 2020 Big Game and are thrilled to be partnering with Adult Swim and Rick and Morty, a show which continues to grow in popularity year after year and enjoys a cult fan following.
“We hope the new special edition Pickle Rick flavour will be a hit with the show’s fans.”
Those sentiments were backed up by Adult Swim senior vice president for marketing and partnerships Jill King.
“We’re very thoughtful about who we partner with around Rick and Morty and we couldn’t be more pleased with our new relationship with Pringles,” she said.
“Not only are the Rick and Morty show creators making a hilarious spot for the Big Game, we’re extending this partnership in really exciting ways, all year long. Rick and Morty fans are going to be given amazing new opportunities to illustrate their love for this iconic show, thanks to Pringles.”
Rick and Morty fans in Australia were recently gifted with the news that the fourth season will drop on Netflix on December 22.
The whole season has nearly aired in America on Adult Swim but thankfully there’s not too much time before the rest of the world will get to lap up the intense new adventures of Rick and Morty.
