A “Guardians of the Galaxy” quote is now being used to SAVE LIVES

There are a lot of great moments in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and many of them involve Baby Groot. Okay, fine, all of the involve Baby Groot, because he is the cutest Groot we’re ever going to see. And now, instead of just brining us joy and happiness, Groot is here to make the world a little bit safer, one seat belt at a time.

If you’ve seen the movie — or even, a few of the Guardians trailers — you know that at one point, our fearless Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) needs to blast off in his Milano, and yells back to Groot:

“Groot, put your seatbelt on!”


Well, now this very smart and safe quote from the movie is actually being used to encourage passengers to wear their seatbelt. When Star-Lord tells you to do something, you do it.

A Twitter user spotted a highway sign in Utah, referencing this moment from the movie:

It caught the attention of Guardians director, James Gunn. Look at that influence you have over traffic and safe practices, James!


The sign then got the perfect Marvel treatment, completely with our beloved Baby Groot.

So you hear that? Put your seatbelt on. The candy (whatever space candy you happen to be eating) can wait.
