‘Rick and Morty’ Creator Prank-Calls Joel Osteen’s Church About ‘Dirty’ Storm Victims (Video)

“I have $83,897 right now for Joel Osteen,” Justin Roiland tells phone operator

If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if one of the “Rick and Morty” characters placed a call to Joel Osteen’s prayer line, wonder no longer.

Justin Roiland, co-creator of the Adult Swim animated series, made an appearance on the H3 podcast this week to raise money for victims of Hurricane Harvey.

During the podcast episode, Roiland called the televangelist’s hotline, using the voice of Rick, the soused time-traveler character from “Rick and Morty.” This follows Osteen’s Houston-based Lakewood Church getting hit with criticism last week for not initially opening its doors to those displaced by the storms.

“I need to talk to Joel Osteen,” Roiland said over the phone as Rick. “It’s a very important message. I have lots of money right now. … I have $83,897 right now for Joel Osteen, and I’m ready to pray.”

When the phone operator appeared to start talking in tongues, Roiland quipped, “If I were to translate this, would it be like, ‘Hey, don’t let people into the building during the flood because we don’t want their dirty footsteps walking on a nice carpets’?”
