At the end of the credits for Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, there's a guy that says
"We Are Groot".
Who is he? Actor and/or character would be awesome.
He is mentioned in the movie as Peter's idol and fatherly figure, however he never actually appears as himself. There is a scene though where once Ego gets annoyed at Peter's rejection, he mentions something like:
I chose the appearance that would be best preferred to you. [transforms into David Hasselhoff] Would you have preferred if I looked like this?
Anyway, that's the character part. Now for the sick rap (nah forreals, hang in here I'm dead serious)
David Hasselhoff can't be gotten rid of that easily, nope. He's also in the soundtrack too, in the titular song Guardians Inferno ft. David Hasselhoff, where he raps about the Guardians:
The significance of that little segment in the credits is related to the lyrics of the actual song; which says something a little bit like this:
In these times of hardship
Ok, it goes exactly like that
This is a callback to the first movie where Groot sacrifices himself to protect the Guardians with a last line of
We are Groot
