The Sony PlayStation 5 continues its marketing push with a clever commercial starring Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith from Rick and Morty. The video carries over the show’s style of humor with Rick impatiently getting Morty to do all the dirty work in selling the console’s features while he counts a stack of cash.

Morty touches on the fast loading speeds and improved haptic feedback, just before he gives up and just says, “the PlayStation 5 is pretty cool.” The 30-second video ends with Rick telling you to “F*cking buy it.” Check out the comical ad above.

In other gaming news, a rare Super Mario Bros. 3 sells for record $156K USD.
