Prepare yourselves for the pop culture crossover you never knew you needed. ‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have recorded an audio commentary for an episode in the upcoming release of ‘Rick and Morty’ Season 3 on Blu-ray.
Not only that, the team behind the HBO sensation made it for the season’s stand-out episode, ‘Pickle Rick.’
Two exclusive clips from their commentary have been released by EW. The first includes an amazing Rick monologue to a therapist which Benioff dubs “maybe the best writing in 2017.” Weiss calls it “the perfect Rick monologue followed by an even better Rick monologue.” You can also watch the clip without commentary below to hear it in full. Jessica Gao penned the episode.
The second exclusive clip has the GoT guys breaking down one of ‘Pickle Rick’s’ action scenes versus the assassin Jaguar. “The last episode of Game of Thrones should be a live-action version of Pickle Rick,” Weiss muses.
The GoT showrunners have long been fans of the Adult Swim breakout, declaring in an interview two years ago that:
“’Rick and Morty’ is one of the funniest, smartest things ever put on TV; every one of its 22-minute plots is more ambitious than 99 percent of the science-fiction films that will be made in the next 10 years.”
Last summer, creator Justin Roiland teased their top-secret recording session with this photo on Twitter:
