In response to Ben's post...
Close on Rocket Raccoon (head only). He’s holding a microphone, talking straight to the camera.
Rocket: Laydeez and gentlemen… Ovoids, H’ylthri and Poppupians… please put your hands, claws, flippers, twigs and sphincters together for our next performer…
Pull out to reveal Rocket Raccoon is on a stage in the corner of a packed space-bar (think Star Wars Cantina). A variety of alien races sit at tables before him, drinking a disgusting array of space cocktails. Behind him, on the stage, Groot sits on a stool, holding an acoustic guitar.
Rocket: Direct from Planet X, via the Negative Zone, Monster Island and the Pine Barrens of New Jersey…
Rocket: This is ‘The Ballad of Groot’!
Rocket flies off stage left while Groot starts playing the guitar.
Mellifluous musical notes drift out across the audience.
While Groot continues playing, we pan around the audience. They are captivated by Groot’s music. The notation continues to drift through the air.
Wide shot of the stage with Groot still playing the guitar, music continuing to drift across the room, the entire audience rapt. While he plays, Groot reaches out a tendril to grab the microphone stand.
Having pulled the microphone closer to his face, Groot now bellows out the lyrics…
Groot: I AM GROOT!
Close on two aliens, a M’Ndavian and a Watcher, sitting at a table in the corner, staring in admiration at the stage while sipping on their cocktails.
M’Ndavian: Man, that’s, like, so deep.
Watcher: You’ve no idea… I saw how long he worked on those lyrics.
