Schwifty

adjective; other word formation type novel creation
Similar to “lit” or “hype”; to be schwifty is to be in a partying sort of mindset.
 
The term is often used in an attempt to be funny, as it came from the somewhat ridiculous television show Rick and Morty. “Let’s get schwifty!” is the general usage. The word was just made up, likely because it sounds funny. Instead of using an existing word, the creators of Rick and Morty probably wanted something unique for them to use; the show is very bizarre and off-the-wall anyways so it’s not unusual for them to coin silly-sounding terms.
Etymology : It was a term made up by the writers for Rick and Morty, and became mainstream once the episode that used the word was aired.
