McDonald’s Mulan Szechuan dipping sauce played a key role in Rick and Morty’s Season 3 premiere, released on April Fool’s. This article has spoilers through Season 3 Episode 1. 

First, here’s the original commercial for the now notorious Szechuan dipping sauce:

Apparently the reason behind everything Rick did (and is going to do) has to do with being able to eat McDonald’s Szechuan sauce again, no matter how long it takes. The comments under the YouTube video are also hilarious because everyone is there because of Rick & Morty. One person wisely commented, “McDonald’s is going to be confused why this sauce is all of a sudden in high demand.”

Now the Internet is going crazy with calls for Szechuan sauce:
