Rick and Morty in the Alien franchise? Sure, why the hell not! If they can accidentally murder and then resurrect the Simpson family, I see no reason why they can’t take on a couple of xenomorphs.

In a new crossover promo clip for Alien: Covenant, Morty convinces a reluctant Rick to respond to a distress call coming from a very familiar looking spacecraft. Not that they have anything to worry about, since no facehugger could possibly contend with the massive amount of drugs and alcohol that Rick consumes on a daily basis.

Just think of all the characters whose lives could have been spared if they’d only gotten riggity riggity wrecked, son.

If you want to watch robot Michael Fassbender play the recorder while a bunch of humans you don’t care about make stupid decisions and then die, check out Alien: Covenant in cinemas now. New episodes of Rick and Morty, meanwhile, should hit the airwaves in the next couple of months.
