Marvel gave YouTube super star Dominic “D-trix” Sandoval an early look at Groot new dancing toy line, and challenged him to create a Groot inspired dance move - the #GrootDancebomb was born.
D-trix choreographed the ultimate “Groot move” to pull off the prank, before bringing it to the unsuspecting streets of Los Angeles.
Join the #GrootDancebomb challenge and view the video on Marvel YouTube channel.
“I’ve been a Marvel fan my whole life, so working on the #GrootDancebomb challenge was a dream come true,” said D-trix. “I found inspiration in Groot’s personality and the fun dance moves featured in the toys. I’m excited to share the #GrootDancebomb challenge with fans around the world and hope to inspire others to join the movement.”
As tree-like creature Groot dances back into theatres in Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2 on May 5, Marvel is now calling for fans to support the #GrootDancebomb Earth Month challenge by busting out a signature Groot move at an expected moment, using a dancing Groot toy to surprise someone, or even just liking or sharing Marvel’s video starring D-trix.
From April 18-May 5, like or share this video on YouTube or Facebook or post your own using #GrootDancebomb on Instagram or Twitter, and help plant up to a quarter of a million trees! Marvel and the Disney Conservation Fund will direct a $1 donation to The Nature Conservancy to plant 1 tree for each action, for a minimum donation of $50,000 and a maximum of $250,000.
Fans watching Marvel’s #GrootDancebomb video will also be treated to D-trix’s signature dance style interspersed with Easter egg Groot toy cameos from Funko, Jakks Pacific, Hasbro and KIDdesigns—all of which can be utilized as perfect props for the unsuspicious dance set-up.
These along with other exciting Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2 merchandise are available now at major retailers and Disney Store and DisneyStore.com for fans of all ages to enjoy.
