Wonderful Pistachios is making some noise for Groot, the Marvel character. This summer, Groot will appear in Disney+ shorts, point-of-sale displays under the banner of “Groot Gets Crackin.’”
The 15-second spot will run on TV and in theaters. In the ad, Groot dances onto the scene only to knock the words “The original plant protein” off the scene. Groot then says “I am Groot!” and rearranges the letters in an incoherent fashion.
A Groot collectible 24 oz. bag of Wonderful Pistachios will also be available in-store and online via Walmart.
Groot has been part of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” comics and live-action motion pictures. In the latter, he was voiced by actor Vin Diesel. The above ad doesn’t include Diesel’s voice.
