The Guardians of the Galaxy may be off in deep space, but they're teaming up with someone from Mars (the candy company, that is) to promote Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - the earth-based sentient snack mascots of M&M's candies.
In lieu of the traditional Reese's Pieces used to lure extra terrestrials, this new commercial shows Red and Yellow, the famous M&M mascots, using popcorn and M&M's to team up with Rocket Raccoon - or at least "the guy who plays him."
Check it out:
This isn't Red and Yellow's first Marvel team-up. A mere four years ago they joined forces with Iron Man to battle M.O.D.O.K. to promote Iron Man 3.
Additionally, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2-branded M&M's will be available to coincide with the release of the film on May 5.
