Rick And Morty Get Trapped In Pringles Advert For Super Bowl Sketch
Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty are known for their pretty bizarre and far-out adventures, but their latest trip might be one of the strangest yet.
The cartoon duo have now been trapped in a Pringles commercial with a bunch of evil crisp-loving robots. What?
In a manic 30-second clip, which will air during this weekend's Super Bowl, a frazzled Morty trundles into his living room laden with tubes of Pringles. He then asks his sister Summer and Rick if they want to mix and match different flavours to make exciting combinations.
Suspicious of what exactly is going on, Rick dives across the sofa and tackles his grandson, knocking off his mask to reveal a sinister robotic head with 'Pringles' emblazoned across it.
"We're trapped in a Pringles commercial," he says before ripping down the wallpaper to reveal a massive Pringles logo. "They must have taken us in our sleep."
Summer shouts: "How do we get out?!"
Holding his head, Rick says: "We can't, Summer. They warned me that this would happen and I didn't listen."
Then an army of Morty-bots, carrying dozens of tubes of Pringles, comes storming into the living room and attacks Summer and Rick.
See, told you it was weird.
But they're not the only ones coming up with wacky concepts for this year's Super Bowl.
Bryan Cranston has remade Stanley Kubrick's classic horror movie The Shining. Well, almost... he's actually remade the film's most iconic scene for the year's NFL highlight.
In the new Mountain Dew advert, the actor takes on the role of Jack Torrance, who famously loses his mind and violently turns on his family.
But unlike Jack Nicholson's wild portrayal of the axe-wielding writer-turned-caretaker, 63-year-old Cranston takes a much more light-hearted approach to the character.
The ad opens with the former Malcolm In The Middle star creeping up the stairs with a bottle of Mountain Dew in his hand, searching for his terrified wife.
"Come out, come out, wherever you are...." he sneers.
He then gets to the bathroom door, pulls out his axe and proceeds to smash his way through.
Then, poking his face through the shattered wooden panel, he shouts: "Here's Mountain Dew Zero!"
And all of a sudden, as if nothing had happened, the woman who had been screaming and cowering in the corner of the room is totally fine.
Taking the bottle from Cranston's hand, she says: "I am thirsty."
A wave of the green pop then sweeps through the hotel lobby before we see a final shot of Cranston wearing a blue dress and a wig, pretending to be the film's demonic twins. Urgh.
