Rick And Morty co-creator and lead vocal performer, Justin Roiland was required to get “especially” drunk for an episode of ‘Rick and Morty’ season three.
In a clip released by Adult Swim, co-creator Dan Harmon explains that episode four of the upcoming season of the show needs Rick to be extra drunk.
As a result, Justin Roiland had to go to extreme lengths to capture the wasted essence of drunk Rick. Knocking back tequila shots in the booth, the show’s producers were getting visibly frustrated as Roiland failed to keep on script and took regular breaks to have small existential crises.

Sydney Ryan, an associate producer who has been working on ‘Rick and Morty’ since season one, encourages Justin to lay off the alcohol and disagrees that Justin’s – clearly drunk – takes sound “too sober”.
Justin’s small breakdowns are entertaining to watch, dropping some darkly comic lines like: “I hope whoever is the next Prez-O doesn’t disallow me to get a gun and kill myself”.
