If you’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy (and this is a bit of a spoiler if you haven’t), you already know that the best part of the movie is Baby Groot’s mid-credits dance to “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5.

But did you know that Baby Groot is great at dancing to all sorts of other songs, too? We made some videos to show he can groove to just about anything. His moves are so versatile they’ll make you say “I am Groot.”
