If we had to narrow down the source of our excitement for the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiere, we'd say Baby Groot takes the cake (sorry not sorry, Chris Pratt). The cutest lil nugget of a tree sapling, Baby Groot is known for his love of dancing, as he often flails his twiggy arms in the air like so.

To celebrate the film's release on May 5, Marvel and the Disney Conservation Fund joined forces to launch the Groot Dance Bomb Challenge. The rules are quite simple and have an eco-friendly twist. Take any of the following actions and Marvel will donate $1 to The Nature Conservancy to plant a tree.
- Post on Instagram or Twitter using #GrootDanceBomb. Marvel is encouraging these videos to feature fans showing off their Groot-like dance moves, but it looks like any related post will count for a donation.
- "Like" or share the official YouTube video that promotes the challenge.
- "Like" or share the same video that's posted on Marvel's official Facebook page.
So what's this famous promotional video we're supposed to be "liking" and sharing? YouTuber Dominic Sandoval teamed up with Marvel to surprise fans with a video demonstrating his own "dance bomb" to kick off the campaign, and it's pretty darn epic. Watch his video below, and get ready to bust a move all in the name of helping out Mother Nature.
