With Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 having opened in a couple of small markets, and a US release set for next weekend, the cast has been busy touring the globe. The stars, as well as director James Gunn have been attending premieres, appearing on late night shows, and meeting fans at big events to try and promote the film.
While in the UK, Chris Pratt stopped to chat with the folks at BBC Radio 1. The show is known for getting celebrities to do funny gags and games, and Pratt was no exception. The actor was asked to play a game called AlphabetiCall.
The goal was for Pratt to make a prank call to a local exotic pet shop, and keep the cashier on the phone long enough to start a sentence with every letter of the alphabet - in order.
As you can imagine, Pratt nailed the objective. He had the lady on the phone totally confused, as he portrayed an old man from Scotland, with an interesting stick bug problem. He even managed to work "I Am Groot" into the conversation.

Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos.
