    if the hoody has a zipper that's a jacket not a hoody, hoodies have no zipper and you can put your hand throw the one side of the hood's pocket and have out come out the other side with out a zipper blocking your hand path. as to an example. so plz stop calling jackets hoodies.

    I am Groot
    *Translation:Groot (/ɡruːt/) is a fictional superheroappearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in Tales to Astonish #13 (November 1960). An extraterrestrial, sentient tree-like creature, the original Groot first appeared as an invader that intended to capture humans for experimentation.The character was reintroduced as a heroic, noble being in 2006, and appeared in the crossover comic book storyline "Annihilation: Conquest". Groot went on to star in its spin-offseries, Guardians of the Galaxy, joining the team of the same name. Groot has been featured in a variety of associated Marvel merchandise, including animated television series, toys and trading cards. Vin Dieselvoices Groot in the 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy, its 2017 sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and reprised the role in the 2018 film Avengers: Infinity War and will do so again in Avengers: Endgame (2019) while Krystian Godlewski played the character via performance capture in the first film. Since his film premiere and animated series debut, Groot has become a pop culture icon, with his repeated line "I am Groot" becoming an Internet meme.*

    12:05 well that sounds like mat is implying that german has less words than english, which is false.
    secondly that compound thingy he is referring to is an additional feature. u can speak german without it. its not possible with all words (mainly with nouns). what im sayin, its a bad comparison in this context.

  • Lucy Thomas

    Here’s a theory. Is it impossible for Groot to speak English? Or another language entirely for that matter? I mean, everyone talks to him in English and he understands it, so why doesn’t he just speak it as well so that everyone understands him?

  • Lucy Thomas
    Lucy Thomas 5 days ago

    Wait here’s a theory. So if Groot belongs to a whole species, then why was he named Groot. If they only say “I am Groot” then why is that his name? Odd isn’t it?

    A friend (that doesn't know marvel) and I (Marvel fan) were watching guardians of the Galaxy and he said "Hey, who's the tree guy?" And I'm just like "bish, it has been saying its name for the whole damn movie!!!" He replied with "Sooo, will you tell me its name?"
    And I just rewind the movie and boom he knows it now.
    But that Metal voice tho!!

  • Junior production gaming and stuff

    But that make no sense you said Thor learned how to speak Groot,but then you say humans can't,(person reading this comment)"well Thor is a God", Yes that's true but if you watch one of the moive Thor was in talking to Odin, odin said " we are just like humans" then Loki said "but we have powers and live longer" or something along those lines so it could be possible, somehow because If Thor cloud it should not be that hard right.

    Half of the characters you mention in the beginning of this video speak just fine, we just don't understand what they're saying for a legit reason/arc for a storyline. That's totally not the same thing as a character that doesn't talk at all, one that barely talks, or one that we're simply NOT meant to understand.
    - Kenny from South Park speaks English just fine. His voice is just muffled by his hoodie.
    - Chewbacca speaks Shyriiwook and only certain characters can speak that language and understand him.
    - R2D2 speaks in Astromech, which is a droid language and also one that Luke can understand as well.
    - Groot speaks the language of the Flora Colossi and is actually saying more than "I am Groot." This isn't even an inside joke anymore.
    - Mario is fluent in Italian, but only knows a little English and has a heavy accent.
