Retro ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Blu-Ray Commercial is Totally ’80s!


Radical! The commercial for the home video release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been posted on YouTube, and it’s a love letter to Peter Quill’s favorite decade — the 1980s!

The commercial looks like it was lifted from an old Disney VHS tape, and from there turns into every 1980s record collection infomercial you’ve ever seen.

The phone number in the commercial actually works, and lets you hear a pre-recorded message from Baby Groot. Any guesses as to what he says? (Maybe it translates to “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine.”)

With the Guardians of the Galaxy coming to Epcot soon, can we expect even more 1980s nostalgia?

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released on digital on August 8, and Blu-Ray, DVD (and VHS?) on August 22.
