As you may have seen, Elmo’s been all over social media this past week. No, not because he finally started using proper pronouns. It’s because of a rock.
Rocco, to be specific. Zoe’s pet rock has been making Elmo question his sanity for years, and the Tik Tok generation has finally discovered it. Welcome to the club, fellow youths.
A few days ago, our friends at the Muppet Wiki shared this video of Elmo enduring the pain of Rocco’s theme song:
Their post went viral (naturally), and the artsy side of the internet has responded! Dozens of fan artists have been recreating this scene (or just Elmo’s death stare) and sharing their work online. And we thought it was hilarious enough to compile and share here with all of you.
Many thanks to the Muppet Wiki for sharing the work, and congrats to all of these talented artists who shared their creations online. If you like what you see, be sure to follow each of these creators on Twitter!
