Let Vin Diesel Teach You How to Say ‘I Am Groot’ in So Many Languages

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel plays a tree-alien thing of not many words. He says only three words, always in the same order: “I am Groot.” This limited vocabulary allowed for Diesel to record the voice-over in many languages. Today Marvel sent out footage of him saying the phrase in Brazilian Portuguese, French, Russian, and Spanish. Watch that and the clip of him saying it in Mandarin on The Tonight Show last night below. Groot is truly the Muzzy of the 2010s.
