Rick And Morty is a wonderfully silly show which even lends itself to real-life crossovers like court transcript reenactments (and fan animations thereof). Now it also lends itself to real life robot design. In season one episode nine, “Something Ricked This Way Comes” (full episode / synopsis), Rick invents a robot that is able to question its own existence but is doomed to a life of only sliding a butter dish across the dining room table. Realizing this, it immediately has an existential crisis. We understand; it’s not like it ever gets to pass something cooler, like the f*cking enchiladas.

Redditor Andredotcom built a real life version of the miserable, butter-passing robot using a 3D printer and a base made from an I-spy Mini Wireless Wifi App-control Spy Tank RC Car. The demonstration video above went viral as all get out this weekend (#6 on Trending).

Here’s the original scene, which stealthily and cuttingly summed up the average workplace existential crisis in sixteen simple words:
