During a surprise season premiere on April Fools Day, Rick and Morty made a less-than subtle reference to a long forgotten McNugget sauce. Like many shows with a cult following, the reference very quickly spiraled into such a large cultural moment that McDonald’s couldn’t ignore.
A softball toss, really
Considering the sauce hasn’t existed in 19 years, McDonald’s had to travel through the multiverse to a dimension where it’s always 1998 (DIMENSION C-1998M). One can tell that is a true story because the box it is stored in is so sciency-looking.
We gave it to the show’s creator
Then we gave some away
This guy bought one
This is truly the “Series Arc” to my life
