This is either a big fan of the cartoon Rick and Morty, a hopeful collector, or a very brave and nostalgic soul: A packet of 1998 McDonald's Szechuan sauce has sold for $14,700 on eBay, reports Time.
The strange background: McDonald's put out the dipping sauce in that year as a publicity tie-in for the Disney movie Mulan, and it received a giant nostalgic push when the character Rick from the popular Adult Swim show pined for it in a recent episode.
That led to a viral campaign for McDonald's to bring it back, complete with multiple Change.org petitions. The company has hinted it might do so, and hopeful fans have noted that a remake of Mulan is in the works for next year.
But the eBay sale is the strangest component yet. "I just bought a really old car, while cleaning it I found a packet of this sauce," the listing stated.
"After watching the recent episode of Rick and Morty I went online to see if it was worth anything. Turns out it was. Also this comes with a packet of wasabi as well."
No word yet on the identity of the buyer, or plans for the sauce, but the Daily Dot is issuing a challenge: The character Rick would definitely eat the stuff, "so how about it, new owner of rare McDonald’s Mulan dipping sauce. Are you squanchy enough to be a Rick?" (A brother recently drove his sister to McDonald's, which is notable only because they have a combined age of 11.)
