Rick Shaped ‘Rick and Morty’ Merch Truck Making a Stop in El Paso
Listen up, Rickuverse.
The Rickmobile is riggity rolling into El Paso next week.
What’s a Rickmobile? It’s a store on wheels. Well, it’s actually a truck that looks like the the Cartoon Network’s mad scientist character, Rick Sanchez, that doubles as a pop up shop, but for the sake of brevity, lets go with ‘store on wheels.’
Anyway, Adult Swim is driving the Rick-shaped truck across the state stopping every now and then to make enough for some gas money and munchies, and on Saturday, Sept. 9, it’s going to roll into the Alamo Drafthouse parking lot for a couple of hours.
For the uninitiated, Rick and Morty is about a scientist named Rick who drags his teen grandson Morty on adventures across space and time. It’s sort of like Back to the Future, if Doc Brown was an angry, alcoholic sociopath.
Fans of the irreverent animated show will be given the opportunity to gleefully hand over their hard earned money for any number of Rick and Morty merchandise.
While the Rick tees and whatnots might result in you having to eat Ramen until the next pay day, I understand pictures of and in front of the gigantic hunched-over-Rick-vehicle are free.
Wubba-Lubba dub-dub, right?!
The cash grab and photo op will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m Saturday, September 9, in the theater parking lot, 250 East Montecillo Blvd. The outdoor event is free to attend.
That’s enough to make you say, ‘Shumshumschilpiddydah!’
