Here is one thing we did not have on our 2022 Bingo playing cards: Elmo releasing a press release addressing his longstanding squabble along with his Sesame Avenue co-star Zoe’s pet rock, Rocco.
However that was precisely what occurred this week after a video of the crimson Muppet sharing some heated phrases in regards to the inanimate object resurfaced on-line.
The 35-second clip, which was taken from a 2004 Sesame Avenue episode titled “Elmo feels he is handled unfairly by Rocco,” confirmed the beloved kids’s icon fully dropping his cool when Zoe instructed him he could not have an oatmeal raisin cookie that had been reserved for Rocco.
“How? How is Rocco going to eat that cookie, Zoe? Inform Elmo,” an exasperated Elmo stated within the video. “Rocco would not actually have a mouth. Rocco is only a rock. Rocco will not be alive.”
Twitter consumer @wumbooty shared the video on Jan. 3, writing that “there are tears in my eyes y’all my abdomen hurting.” The clip then went viral and the Web shortly took sides—thus rehashing Elmo’s decades-long feud with Rocco.
