‘Rick and Morty’ posts ominous message about hallucinogenic parasites

Just when you think anticipation over the upcoming third season of Rick and Morty has reached a fever pitch, you realize—no, wait, that’s actually a fever.

In a new video posted to the show’s Facebook page, the Centers for Extraterrestrial Parasite Control issued an ominous warning to tristate residents about the spread of hallucinogenic parasites, which can cause zany acquaintances to suddenly appear in your life. According to the crawl, other symptoms can include “food-based appendages, exclusively happy family memories, [and] literary characters.”

Similar such parasites made a memorable appearance in Rick and Morty’s lives during the episode “Total Rickall” (season 2, episode 4), and we all remember how well that ended for characters like Pencilvester and Reverse Giraffe. Could another infestation be on its way?

Season 3 of Rick and Morty premieres on Sunday, July 30.
