Life is finally imitating art, with Christopher Lloyd playing the role of Rick in a live-action teaser for the coming season of Rick and Morty, a part that was inspired by his own Doc Brown character in Back to the Future.

A tweet from the Adult Swim account this morning revealed the short video which also features a wheezy Morty.

The teaser is short -- only 14 seconds long -- and after the characters step out of a portal there are two lines of dialogue:

Rick: Morty, *burp* we're home. 

Morty: Oh geez.

An Adult Swim representative told CNET that: "It's Rick and Morty season 5 finale weekend and you never know what surprises are in store."

Lo and behold, Adult Swim dropped two more clips, including one which features a giant pickle.

While Rick and Morty and Back to the Future fans alike hope it's a teaser for a standalone live-action show, it's likely a part of the two-part finale that airs on Sunday night starting at 11 p.m. ET.
