Are you Team Elmo, or Team Rocco? This week, Elmo's longstanding feud with Rocco, Zoe's pet rock, went viral on Twitter as users realized that the beloved Sesame Star has had enough! with the slab of minerals that keeps stealing his cookies and "offering" unhelpful advice. While Zoe and the rest of the Sesame Street gang want Elmo to play along and pretend Rocco is real, Elmo just can't bring himself to do it; instead, he angrily reminds everyone that Rocco is not a sentient being at every possible opportunity. Enjoy two minutes of a frustrated Elmo yelling, "He's a ROCK!" in this YouTube compilation.
