Groot Has A Cellphone And You Can Text Him Right Now

For deep answers to all of life's most existential questions.


Can’t get enough Guardians of the Galaxy? Wish you could hang out with them forever? Well now you can have a Guardian in your pocket 24/7, ready to advise you at a moment’s notice. Yep, a-holes – you can now text with Groot!

It’s simple: just send your most complex, philosophical queries to (866) 740-4531. Groot will receive them, and respond in no time at all. Perfect for when you’re feeling a bit lonely; for when you’re tempted to drunk text your ex; or for when you want to impress your friends with the fact that your cell plan includes interstellar texting.

Yes, I tried it. Yes, it’s pretty excellent.

This Rocket-approved bot was built by a Twilio employee, Ricky Robinett – and it seems like everyone wants the opportunity to chat with a Guardian of the Galaxy.

Honestly, this art by DepartedPro has never been more appropriate:

Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.
