If there’s one wholly predictable factor about Rick and Morty, it is that every little thing about it past this one factor is wholly unpredictable. Living proof: the Adult Swim hit often provides its titular characters the not-so-dangerous missions of hawking wares for numerous firms in oddball sponsored advertisements. The newest little bit of Rick and Morty promotional chaos is for Outdated Spice, and the business is sort of a shocker, because it seems to kill off the fan favourite Butter Robotic. Test it out under!
This business begins off in the very same manner because the Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s advert that was launched in 2015, with the megaphone-toting Rick bursting into Morty’s room and stunning the squeaky-voiced teenager out of in a single day slumber. All so Rick can introduce his “pals,” the three totally different canisters of Outdated Spice Invisible Sprays: Bearglove, Swagger and Pure Sport. The super-smiley canisters are oh so joyful to start out messing with every little thing in Morty’s room, and that is when issues get fascinating.
As co-creator Justin Roiland is flatly Rick-reading off the advert copy regarding the Outdated Spice Invisible Sprays’ noteworthy qualities, Pure Sport digs by Morty’s desk and finds Butter Robotic, which Morty’s brief arms are unable to get again. Butter Robotic will get handed to Bearglove, who then flips it again over its head and into Swagger’s mouth, the place the single-tasked bot will get chewed up as the commercial ends. (With Rick counting off the cash he earned for this non-subtle money seize.)
For individuals who may not bear in mind, Butter Robotic was first launched within the Season 1 episode, “One thing Ricked This Approach Comes.” Its fat-dispensing destiny was quickly realized after it asks Rick what its goal is, and Rick tells it to cross the butter. And it is a hilariously uncomfortable second when Butter Robotic morosely realized that his whole existence is all about passing butter. (And never about being pals.) Following that look, it was additionally used within the cellular sport Pocket Mortys. And in case anybody desires to problem the notion that Butter Robotic is a beloved character, it was legitimately created in actual life, each as a regular butter-passing bot and as a battle-waging megabot.
However was Butter Robotic really chewed up and “killed,” so to talk, within the advert above? Contemplating its predominant look on the present itself got here throughout that single episode, it is not as if there are any massive canonical the reason why it could not be killed off in a 30-second business. I imply, I am not precisely certain that joyous, adult-sized canisters of Outdated Spice are a part of Rick and Morty‘s pure universe, however they’d not be the weirdest creatures to point out up and make us question everything.
Sadly, Rick and Morty‘s third season ended weeks in the past and we do not know when Season four will ever get right here, though it may have more episodes when it does. Within the meantime, you may try the trailer for Rick and Morty‘s porn parody whereas studying about why any show-related theories we provide you with may very effectively be actual. Resembling the assumption that Butter Robotic survived this Outdated Spice advert and can return sooner or later.
