Rick and Morty: why everyone loves Rick Sanchez. For more Rick and Morty videos, subscribe here: http://bit.ly/COC-Subscribe
Today let’s talk about Rick & Morty!
Rick and Morty is one of the smartest, funniest, most entertaining shows in recent memory. One super interesting aspect of Rick and Morty is that its title character, Rick Sanchez, is beloved by fans despite being an apathetic horribly flawed criminal.
In fact, the majority of Rick and Morty viewers root for Rick more than any other character.
Today we’re going to go over why exactly that is, using some of my favorite Rick and Morty clips, and also a few things you can apply to your own life to be as magnetic and well respected as Rick, without all the terrible traits mixed in :-)

This is so interesting and i love this type of conversation. The other day I was thinking about why so many love the Joker from DC when he's such a crazy psychopathic asshole but I cant talk. I am obsessed with Rick and he's virtually the same, just a scientist.
People are all saying if they knew Rick in real life they would want to be his friend. Sure, you say that now, but if he treated you like he treats Morty, you wouldn’t exactly want to hang out with him. He’s a really bad person. He has some good qualities, sure, but he does horrible, abusive, and cruel things. He’s not a good father, grandfather, or friend. He’s purely entertainment. Nothing more.
Speaking as a diagnosed anti-social, narcissist and megalomaniac, I can attest to the benefit of finding an outlet for these traits. Video games sate my desires for power and control, provide the means for me to reflect on my selfishness without getting angry and allow for absolute, uninhibited, unrelenting violence. My favorite game covers all these: Hitman. Today, I'm a liberal with social awareness who has devised logical arguments for moral behavior, something I never thought I'd subscribe to as a kid, but now I recognize the benefits of. If I didn't have video games, I'd be a danger to people around me.
An anti-social's best friend is whatever alleviates boredom without harming other people. Breaking the rules set by the majority, who are not like us, is flipping a coin for ruining whatever potential you might have and pursuing that potential to its end. It's the difference between a CEO and a prisoner. It's the difference between a presidency and imprisonment. It's the difference between endless wealth and nothing to your name. It's not only logical to go by the rules set by society, it's beneficial to your continued existence within it. However, if you're going to commit a crime, take time to prepare, plan every detail and make sure you get away with it, because if you don't, you're fucked.
I like rick because I always strive to be a "genius" even though i'm of pretty average intellect. I have a lot of good invention ideas but I struggle to create prototypes. I also have a dark view of mankind and love and all that, the same as Rick does, but he's so much better at communicating it. He's a mix of who I am and who I want to be. He goes on these rants and I swear he's pulling it all straight from my mind, but if I were to try to explain it it would come out way wrong. I think a lot of people feel the way he does, but like me, they either can't really communicate such thoughts as well as Rick, or simply hold them in in fear of being judged or disliked. Most of your video was pretty spot on tbh.
I have a better way of saying this:
Rick is like Bill Murray. We love him because he says and does all the things that we subconsciously have always wanted to say; even though it's really dickish. Life can be frustrating, and sometimes it's just great to vent. The problem is that Rick and Bill are filling fictional roles in tv/movies, where the people they are being dicks to have been written to deserve it on some level. They are still cool because of that.
Finding the appropriate outlet is there in a part of the answer
I just want to say the way you handled the "like and subscribe" part is the only reason Ive ever knowingly subscribed to a channel. You guys are really insightful and I love the work youve done. Thanks!
You could talk about bojack horseman, who is very similar to rick in many senses. Substance abuse, flawed character, and yet a very charismatic one. One of his defining traits is how he never censors himself, regardless the consequences
I just discovered this channel, already a couple of videos down, and as an actor seriously interested in human behaviour, it's incredible how much there is to learn in these videos.. Seriously amazing!
Because he's funny. You're really obsessed with trying to use cartoons and story books to try and create some narrativs on the human condition aren't you? I think you should maybe step away from the computer and go outside for a bit.
In all honesty, this makes a ton of sense. You can apply this exact logic to the 2016 US elections and even Kylo Ren in the new Star Wars films. They're by no means perfect people but you still understand their goals honestly. I can't believe I'm seeing this philosophy only now.
You got this completely wrong. They like rick because he is one of those rare passive aggressive characters that speak the truth normal people hold back because of social constructs. He is completely right when he says nothing matters in the universe and you are all insignificant, because this is the real scientific and cold truth to our existance.
