"Improvise" is the key word here.

A few months back, Ben Stiller wowed us with a pseudo-sequel to his 2004 comedy hit DodgeBall in an effort to raise money through Omaze for The Stiller Foundation. Now it’s time for Rick and Morty creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland to follow suit, albeit in a much more low-budget fashion.

Rick and Morty fans have been going bonkers over the construction sets being released on November 1st, which detail specific settings and characters from the show. As far as timing goes, it couldn’t be better. How else would Harmon and Roiland be able to properly convey what it’s like to record commentary with them? Cue the lights and cameras: it’s action (figure) time.

Whoa, who knew that Mr. Poopybutthole is actually an adult Meeseeks? I guess you learn a new tidbit of R&M absolute, 100 percent canon every time you catch up with these guys. Surely there’s more where that came from if you wind up winning their Omaze Commentary Contest. And if not, you still get plenty of sweet swag just for donating (Warning: the outgoing, personalized voicemail messages from Justin Roiland have already sold out, so act quickly).

Oh, and did we mention the winner of the contest will be treated to some coveted McDonald’s Szechuan sauce while recording their episode of Season 3 commentary? Now that’s something to get excited about.

Come to think of it, Jennifer Lawrence did one of these Omaze charities, too (but sexier): Here’s Your Chance To Drink Some Wine With Jennifer Lawrence On A Hot Date
