'Rick and Morty' fan sells his McDonald's Szechuan sauce for $15,000. And I say that with all the love in my plumbus. Season 3's surprise April Fools premiere ended with Rick's crazed, psychopathic rant about how his "9 Season character arc" would revolve around getting McDonald's discontinued Szechuan sauce back. McDonald's responded to their petitions in kind when the second episode released several months later. But rather than tear into it right away, Workman polled the internet for suggestions on what to do with it, ranging from bathing in the sauce to selling it. And one Ebay listing later, Workman was up a cool $15,000 Schmeckles. When the price started reaching into the tens of thousands, Workman chose to give a percentage of the proceeds to Able Gamers, Extra Life, Take This, the Ronald McDonald House and other charities. Unfortunately, Workman has yet to hear back from the ultimate winner, but he's got plans for a 2nd place winner in case of fraud. am i really in the middle of a bidding war over a 64oz bottle of Szechuan Sauce? When I asked how tempted he was to crack open the bottle of teriyaki-like sauce gold himself, Workman explained that he'd already had a taste of the stuff back in '98.
No one worships useless, pointless nonsense like the Rick and Morty fanbase. And I say that with all the love in my plumbus.
Season 3’s surprise April Fools premiere ended with Rick’s crazed, psychopathic rant about how his “9 Season character arc” would revolve around getting McDonald’s discontinued Szechuan sauce back.
It was the lunatic ravings of a madman, and Rick and Morty fans took up the creed as a religion.
McDonald’s responded to their petitions in kind when the second episode released several months later. They not only sent co-creator Justin Roiland his beloved sauce, but also gave away three more 64oz bottles to randomly selected fans.
One such fan was Robert Workman, a writer on Comicbook.com who hit 90’s Mulan movie tie-in sauce jackpot. He retweeted the McDonald’s contest with the simple phrase “NINE MORE SEASONS.”
