Local fans of Rick and Morty came in droves to see the Rickmobile, a truck in the shape of the alcoholic scientist from the Adult Swim show, when it rolled through the Valley last year.
Now the sociopath's teenage companion has a vehicle of his own, the aptly named Mortymobile. And not only can you get a picture with it, but you can also take it for a spin.
If you're in the vicinity of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Chandler, located at 4955 South Arizona Avenue in Chandler, on Friday, January 17, from noon to 2 p.m., you can post a shot of yourself next to the 2010 Crystal White Pearl Mica Mazda 3 with a fiberglass replica of the teenage cartoon character on the top. It was introduced at the Adult Swim Festival in Los Angeles late last year.
But the Mortymobile won't be selling the show's merchandise. The hatchback is a part of a partnership between Adult Swim and the car-sharing company Turo. If you like what you see, you can take the Mortymobile for a spin from January 18 through 25 if you sign up for the service. There are some restrictions, but proceeds from the bookings go to an organization that supports and empowers women in technical fields.
