Someone traded a ‘Rick and Morty’ Szechuan sauce packet for a literal car
The McDonald’s Rick and Morty Szechuan sauce promotion was, by all accounts, a terrible and embarrassing disaster. But one person came out on top: a woman named Rachel from Macomb, Wisconsin, who traded her sauce packet for a car.
The Drive reports that Rachel, who had the wherewithal to be first in line at her local McDonald’s and actually obtain a packet of Szechuan sauce, originally hoped to exchange her bounty for a few rare pins on Facebook. To be clear, this is an extremely good trade when all you have to give up is one packet of promotional sauce.
But a fellow named Duane Kimmel did her one better. In a real-life version of the “I only got seven” line from Spongebob Squarepants, he offered her a 2004 Volkswagon GTI.
Rachel, of course, accepted the trade, because she is a savvy businesswoman. And as she enjoys her new car, please refrain from telling the dude who traded it that McDonald’s plans to bring back Szechuan sauce anyway.
