About

AI Rick Laughing refers to an AI-generated video of Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty laughing diabolically in front of a crowd of people and then running while pointing a gun. The video is blue, grey and black and also features Morty Smith and Beavis and Butthead laughing. The AI video was used in split-screen Sigma edits to indicate that the media shown above it was "sigma." The AI Rick Laughing format was parodied en masse on Instagram and Twitter / X in 2024, similar to parodies of the Bryan Cranston Sigma Barbershop Quartet and Patrick Bateman and Joker Lightning Eyes formats. The original video was posted by TikToker Vidzard (@vizardtv) in March 2024.
