Hey Rick and Morty fans, do you remember Glenn? Sure you do, he was the gromflomite that Morty shot as he and Rick ran away from the interdimensional customs guards in the pilot episode. Morty was hesitant, but he fired when Rick assured him they were all just robots. That turned out to be very much not the case, though, as Morty saw Glenn bleed out and one of his cohorts scream, “Glenn’s bleeding to death! Someone call his wife and children!”

That line added another layer of depth to Morty’s actions, and now a fan-made video explores that backstory brilliantly. The four-minute 3D animation shows Glenn’s origins as an office worker, who meets his wife at a bus stop and regurgitates an umbrella to protect her from the rain. Their budding romance blossoms from there, and it’s actually a pretty heartwarming video.
David James Armsby, who made the clip, wrote in the video description:
“Well, this was a dumb video. I came up with the idea after re-watching the series in preparation for Season 3. It took WAAY too long to make and I’m not sure if it was worth it. But I still find it funny, in a weird ironic sort of way. […] I also focused way more on the existential irony and depressing themes of the show over the comedy. I prefer that stuff.”
Re-watch the original scene below, and let us know in the comments if, like us, this fan video is now canon in your heart.
