‘Morty, you don’t drink drugs’

The benefits of Rick’s lifestyle.

Posted by Adult Swim on Saturday, May 13, 2017

Adult Swim might not release its upcoming third season of Rick & Morty until later this summer, but to hold us over, it just dropped an entertaining clip that ties in with Alien: Covenant. In it, the show’s titular characters have some advice for the hapless employees of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation: an unhealthy amount of alcohol and drugs in your system could save your life.

It’s not clear if this is a clip from the upcoming season, if it’s a weird marketing stunt, or if it’s just a throwaway gag, but either way, it’s entertaining one. The clip follows Rick and Morty as they explore one of the Engineer’s ships, where Rick is attacked by a facehugger. Fortunately, his drug and alcohol habit helps save him from becoming a host, something that the characters from Alien should take into consideration next time they decide to take a closer look at an extraterrestrial. It’s a short clip, but it’s enough to get us excited for the show’s eventual return.
