'Rick and Morty' Character Dies In Old Spice Promo

Rick and Morty is known in part for creating a whole league of zany side characters that the titular pair meet on their intergalactic/interdimensional adventures, and from the way that fans embrace them, those side characters sometimes become as prominent as the members of the Smith family are (see: Mr. Poopy Butthole).

Well Rick and Morty fans may be feeling the sting of loss and tragedy right now, as one side character from the series' early days has just met his end in recent Old Spice promo set in the Rick and Morty universe!

As you can see above, the butter-passing robot that Rick created in the opening of "Something Ricked This Way Comes" (S1E9) gets totally cannibalized by the Old Spice Swagger spray can! What a savage way for a useless robot to die...

Like with all things Rick and Morty, this Old Spice advertisement keeps with the show's tradition of honoring convention while also skewering it. t's an ad that's also making fun of selling out for advertising dollars, but it will be interesting to see if the death of the butter-passing robot actually gets counted as part of the show's canon. Keep your eyes peeled during future scenes set in Morty's room...

No one knows when Rick and Morty season 4 will arrive; we just know it's going to be a long wait.
