If you hang around Moreland Avenue Thursday evening, you just might see a familiar cartoon face. Actually, we guarantee you’ll see that face because it’s 13-feet tall.
The Rick and Morty “Rickmobile” is embarking on a cross-country tour, “The Don’t Even Trip Road Trip,” that kicks off here in Adult Swim’s home base of Atlanta. The 13-foot-tall, 26-foot-wide truck—which is also a gift shop—was designed by the Adult Swim creative team and took five months to concept, design, and build, according to Jim Babcock, vice president of marketing for Adult Swim. It was constructed in Los Angeles and began its interstate journey from there to Atlanta on Sunday.
Underneath Rick’s massive lab coat, you’ll find all kinds of Rick and Morty merch, including socks, t-shirts, a backpack that orders you to “get your shit together,” even this adorable Morty plush. There’s also an official tour t-shirt. (Pro tip for fans who can’t make it out tomorrow night: You can order that online here.)
The truck will be hanging out in a parking lot near Tijuana Garage and Front Page News (323 Moreland Avenue) from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, so don’t miss your chance to take an epic selfie.
