Chris Pratt Casually Slips An ‘I Am Groot’ Into This Prank Phone Call

The last time Chris Pratt visited BBC Radio 1, it was with Jennifer Lawrence while the pair were promoting Passengers. The film turned out to be a flop, both critically and commercially, but at least we got Andy Dwyer telling Katniss Everdeen, “During our sex scene, I felt your dick rubbing into me.” Pratt dropped by the radio station again this week, sans J-Law, to get people hyped for what sounds like a much better movie than Passengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (not that it needs the help), and to play “AlphabetiCall.”

The premise is simple: “All he has to do is make a phone call where each sentence starts with the next letter of the alphabet.” But the execution: not so much. On one end of the call is Pratt with an offensively bad accent; on the other, an exotic pet store employee. Star-Lord has an easy time with A (“Are you there?”) and E (“Exactly what I asked myself”), but struggles once he gets to X (“X-rated, though”) and Z (“Zoologically speaking, would you say it was accurate in terms of the stick-bug being able to say, I am Groot?”). Unfortunately, Pratt never got his stick-bug, but at least he has a mouse-rat.
