This Mr. Meeseeks infomercial is ‘Rick and Morty’ gold


Feeling down at work? Like you just can’t finish your task and poof out of existence?

Well, Mr. Meeseeks, the helpful blue guy from the hit Adult Swim cartoon series Rick and Morty, has some advice.

In delightful late-night infomercial style, Mr. Meeseeks delivers self-help suggestions that perhaps only other Meeseekses will understand. You see, existence is pain for a Meeseeks—as we learned back in season 1 of the series—but a Meeseeks can’t leave this world until his task is complete. The Meeseeks at the desk probably just wants get on with exploding into oblivion, but it’s not until he hears the inspiring catchphrase, “I’m Mr. Meeseeks, look at me!” that he summons the energy to finish answering the phone.

The question is: If existence is pain to a Meeseeks, why would any of them need more motivation? Well, have you seen a gaggle of Meeseeks try to help Jerry’s golf game? Some tasks are almost hopeless.
