Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Hysterical Groot Dance You've Been Waiting To Watch 50 More Times

SPOILER WARNING: Just in case the headline wasn't clear enough, we're going to be diving into some Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers in this article. If you haven't seen the film and don't wish to know about key details in the film's third act, I would highly recommend checking out another one of our wonderful articles on the site!

There are far too many incredibly entertaining moments in Guardians of the Galaxy to list here, but certainly one that tops the list is what could be called the mid-credits sequence. Featuring no dialogue, the scene is set in the belly of Star-Lord's ship The Milano and finds potted baby Groot sitting on a table next to Drax, who is focusing on cleaning one of his daggers. The sound of the insanely catchy "I Want You Back" by The Jackson 5 is piped in, and slowly but surely baby Groot starts to dance. It's a moment that makes you both laugh and go "aww," and now you can watch it over and over until the end of time.

Marvel Studios and Disney have officially released the clip of dancing Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. As you probably noticed watching the video in the embed above, the scene only runs about 39 seconds long, but the good news is that Yahoo! also posted the huge gif you see below. Just start playing the song and start staring at it for a few minutes. I guarantee that it will lighten your day:


In this scene, Groot is recovering after having been shattered into a million pieces trying to save his Guardians of the Galaxy feam-mates, but it looks like getting the chance to grow up again isn't doing much to disturb his generally sunny disposition. The even better news is that it probably won't be long until Groot grows to his full size - his regenerative powers are off the charts - and he will once again be at full power to help protect his heroic brothers and sister and fight against any and all threats against the cosmos.

If you want to see the other end credits sequence that everybody has been talking about, you'll have to go see Guardians of the Galaxy in theaters. The movie is continuing to do big business both domestically and aboard, so far bringing in $330 million internationally. This weekend it will not only be contending with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but also newcomers The Expendables 3, Let's Be Cops and more. What will you be seeing?
