We texted Groot some of our burning pop-culture questions

Groot 05

You can now text Groot, and, as you could probably guess, the Guardians of the Galaxy tree does not have a very wide vocabulary. Still, we at EW decided to see if Groot could weigh in on some of our burning pop-culture questions.

Just how are we texting Groot? Well, anyone can reach him at (866) 740-4531. As TechCrunch reported, credit goes to developer Ricky Robinett, who created the chatbot. Groot is apparently quite popular: As Robinett tweeted this morning: “Groot had a busy night last night, he has now sent over 60,000 messages!”

But what does Groot have to say about Taylor Swift’s new album? Can he confirm who is playing Doctor Strange? Here’s our (somewhat one-sided) conversation.

Update: We asked Groot another very important question.
