Now, when we say that 'Vin Diesel On Stilts is the Best Thing Ever', you might well thing that we're over-selling it.

I mean, you might...
I mean, you might...

Just because he turned up at the Guardians of the Galaxy European premiere on stilts, and wearing an I AM GROOT t-shirt, you might add, doesn't mean that's the coolest thing that's ever happened. Even if he did stand next to a LEGO version of himself. On stilts.

Sadly without Bradley Cooper...

I mean, sure, he signed a Samsung advertisement for no particular reason...

Other than the desire to deface blank spaces...

And, yeah, he may have tried to eat Karen Gillan...

And her adorable hair of red...

And then - sure - he totally pretended to fall over...

Or actually did, it's not really clear...

But that doesn't mean that him adorably trying to hug director James Gunn from stilts is that great, does it?

I mean, it's not as though he took selfies with fans while pretending to be Groot, or anything...

So y'know what, you might be right... Maybe Vin Diesel on stilts at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere isn't the best thing ever.

No, wait. Now he's dancing.

Called it.

Best. Thing. Ever.

[Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073) is out on August 1, 2014. And it's going to be great. But 'Stilt-wearing Vin Diesel' great? I don't know...
