i have this head cannon that Phil the groundhog was a member of a groundhog motorcycle club. He was wearing leather coats and sunglasses and was the leader of his club, respected by every groundhog. Untill those damn humans captured him and that he has to live in captivity. The other groundhogs make fun of him and he is ashamed of his new life, and now he eats his emotions. So the day Phil Connors steals him, Phil the groundhog is very happy to drive the truck. He’s a badass again.
