UPDATE May 17 @ 2:00 p.m.: The Rickmobile location has been changed; it will now roll up on Dewey Square in downtown Boston from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday (May 20).
Move over, Oscar Meyer Weinermobile. There’s a new van on tour, and it’s a lot more appalling.
The Rickmobile, based on the Adult Swim show Rick and Morty, rolls into Boston this weekend to peddle its zany line of merchandise as part of its cross-country spring tour. The van, which features main character Rick squatting on a back of a tractor-trailer (complete with slobber and a bewildered expression),
parks at The Hempest on Newbury Street on Saturday (May 20) from 1 to 4 p.m. [See update up top]
We can only imagine how many people it’ll confuse on the Zakim Bridge.
And let’s hope it doesn’t Storrow.

The Rickmobile’s journey across the U.S. started in Georgia last week, and the brief Boston visit follows three stops in New York City before trucking off to Pennsylvania.
While some stops on the tour only offer photo opps, the Boston stop (albeit brief) will offer the full line of merchandise.
According to a list of merch on the van’s twitter (yes, someone made a verified twitter just for this), the van stocks everything from toy car versions of the van, to Rick and Morty editions of Monopoly.
Peep the goods below before getting in line this Saturday, and leave your cash at home — this wheeling pop-up is credit cards only.
