It’s a shrill and irritating phrase, but it’s also one of the most existentially rich of any in modern comedy: “I’m Mr. Meeseeks. Look at me.” It’s a life form blinked into existence and then immediately becoming self-aware. “Existence is pain to a Meeseeks, Jerry.” What sad and horrifying beings are the Misters Meeseeks from Rick and Morty, and yet they are right in keeping with the other absurdly tragic characters from the series. (Mr. Poopybutthole is a metaphor for us all.) Anyway, now you can 3D print two versions of Mr. Meeseeks thanks to YouTuber 3D Print Guy.
While the video doesn’t really tell you how to do it, it does offer printable versions of the parameters needed for his two designs — one is the friendly Meeseeks, just after being “birthed” and the other is the angry suicidal Meeseeks who would sooner see a restaurant full of people dead than have to endure Jerry not managing to succeed in his seemingly very simple goal of shaving two swings off his golf game. We get to watch sped up shots of the creation of the 3D figures mixed with scenes and music from Rick and Morty. Perhaps strangely, it’s scored to “Goodbye Moonman” sung by Jemaine Clement, a/k/a Fart.
The 3D printed figures look pretty great and would make a tremendous addition to any desk or shelf. I won’t get in to the possible ethical dilemma of owning a being created for the sole purpose of decorating a mantelpiece; that’s for someone else to talk about, and perhaps even a Rick and Morty episode to deal with. “I’m Mr. Meeseeks! LOOK AT ME!!” We are, friend. We are.
