Nobody worships ineffective, pointless nonsense just like the Rick and Morty fanbase. And I say that with all of the love in my plumbus.
Season three’s shock April Fools premiere ended with Rick’s crazed, psychopathic rant about how his “9 Season character arc” would revolve round getting McDonald’s discontinued Szechuan sauce again.
It was the lunatic ravings of a madman, and Rick and Morty followers took up the trigger like a faith.
McDonald’s responded to their petitions in sort when the second episode launched a number of months later. They not solely despatched co-creator Justin Roiland his beloved sauce, but in addition gave away three extra 64ouncesbottles to randomly chosen followers.
One such fan was Robert Workman, a author on Comicbook.com who hit 90’s Mulan film tie-in sauce jackpot. He retweeted the McDonald’s contest with the straightforward phrase “NINE MORE SEASONS.”
However somewhat than tear into it straight away, Workman polled the web for solutions on what to do with it, starting from bathing within the sauce to promoting it. Promoting received by solely a small margin. And one Ebay itemizing later, Workman was up a cool $15,00zero Schmeckles.
The bidding hit peak web when Deadmau5 tweeted about attempting to clinch the public sale himself. When the worth began reaching into the tens of hundreds, Workman selected to provide a share of the proceeds to In a position Avid gamers, Additional Life, Take This, the Ronald McDonald Home and different charities.
Sadly, Workman has but to listen to again from the last word winner, however he is obtained plans for a 2nd place winner in case of fraud.

All through Workman’s Szechuan sauce journey, he not solely made associates with Deadmau5, but in addition McDonald’s Chef Mike Haracz himself.
After I requested how tempted he was to not less than pattern the teriyaki-like gold himself, Workman defined that he was hooked on the stuff again in ’98. “Man, I received’t lie. I used to be tempted to open this unhealthy boy and jet all the way down to McDonald’s for some nuggets.”
All in all, whereas the eye his harrowing journey has obtained proved, “overwhelming,” Workman stated that finally, “It’s been a enjoyable journey.”
