Sony Releases PS5 Ad Featuring Rick And Morty
The two apparently got paid "a lot" to promote Sony's new PlayStation 5 console.
Sony has partnered with Adult Swim's buddy scientists Rick and Morty to deliver a quirky 30-second PlayStation 5 advertisement.
The two appear in Morty's parents' living room, with Rick counting what looks to be a lot of money and Morty standing to the left of the PlayStation 5. Rick tells Morty to "talk about the thing," to which Morty, stammering as he does, begins to list off some PS5 talking points.
"This is the PlayStation 5," Morty says, gesturing to the right, where the console stands vertically on a white Ikea-looking table. "It's really fast. It's super fast. Like, way less of those long loading screens, you know?" According to Rick, "they" really wanted the two to mention the PlayStation 5's speed because the fast loading times are "really important to them."
Morty then very briefly dives into the DualSense's features. He talks about the haptic feedback in the controller, as well as the adaptive resistance found in the shoulder buttons. But Morty ends up blocking the console, which Rick tells him not to do because "they wanted that in the shot." The advertisement concludes with Rick telling the camera to "go play PS5" after shouting a bunch of expletives as he always does. Check out the short advertisement above.
The PlayStation 5 is now available worldwide, but they're pretty difficult to get a hold of. However, GameStop and Walmart plan to restock their shelves in time for Black Friday.
