Rick and Morty Celebrates the Holidays With Bizarre Rap Single


Rick and Morty is celebrating the holidays with the bizarre release of a new rap single featuring Spencer Grammer as Summer Smith! The fan favorite Adult Swim animated series is arguably bigger than ever this year as the franchise not only returned for its fifth season, but has collaborated with a number of surprising companies for a whole new set of promotional materials. The year saw Rick and Morty take over a Wendy’s, Adult Swim released a series of live-action promos starring Back to the Future star Christopher Lloyd, and there seems to be no sign of stopping any time soon.

The oddest promotional effort to come out of Rick and Morty lately (which is saying a lot considering not only what has been done in the actual series but its extended anime endeavors too) is the release of a new rap single, “It’s Rickmas Time.” Debuting on Adult Swim’s official YouTube channel the new single features Spencer Grammer’s Summer Smith performing the single written by Heather Anne Campbell with music composed by Ryan Elder. If fans needed another way to get ready for the holiday, this might be a fun one to slip into the shuffle playlist. Check it out below:

Rick and Morty will be returning for Season 6 some time next year, but it has yet to be confirmed when exactly it will be premiering. As for the fifth season, it recently released on Blu-ray and DVD so fans can now find it on shelves. The first four seasons of the series are now streaming with HBO Max if you wanted to catch up as well. If you wanted a different kind of Rick and Morty experience to go along with Summer’s rapping, there are also a few anime inspired shorts that you might like. The list breaks down as such:
