Getting ready for the long weekend but still stuck at work and wondering where your life went wrong? Well, we’ve got a little silver lining for you, in the form of a crummy video of “Guardians of the Galaxy” actors Dave Bautista and Michael Rooker recreating the sequence at the end of the film with baby Groot dancing. It is a delight.
The impromptu scene recreation happened at the Wizard World Chicago, a fairly widely attended comic book convention. Bautista, who played Drax the Destroyer, is spot on in Xeroxing his performance from the movie while Rooker takes some “Magic Mike”-style liberties with Groot boogying down. (Rooker, for those unfamiliar with his human visage, played buck-toothed, blue-skinned baddie Yondu.) The footage, courtesy of io9, isn’t the best quality, but that doesn’t matter – your heart will explode with joy just the same.
