If one hasn’t been in touch with news from Hollywood recently, let us make this clear once and for all Dwayne Johnson is in everything. From movies to children’s series to Tequila brands to songs, The Rock can’t seem to get enough of the limelight. And we are definitely not complaining!
In recent news, it has come to light that he might be leaving the Fast and Furious franchise in the rearview- but that is because his latest target has been Sesame Street. The star from Red Notice has officially served the resident cookie chomper of the block, the infamous Cookie Monster, with an open challenge to move over, for the Rock was here, and he needed his cookies.
Dwayne Johnson Is Ready To Battle The Cookie Monster
Needless to say, Dwayne Johnson’s tweet heated up pretty fast with Cookie Monster replying that he accepted the cookie challenge. This epic face-off has been the direct result of another feud with Sesame Street that has been consuming the attention of the internet- Elmo vs Rocco, the pet rock of Zoe, the good friend of Elmo.
On the 3rd of January, the trio started getting viral on Twitter thanks to a viral clip from 2004 in which Elmo, Rocco, and Zoe were struggling to share the last raisin cookie between themselves. Zoe claims that Rocco wants the cookie, to which Elmo replies that Rocco is just a rock, and has no idea what a cookie really is.
Although Elmo has stated that he is on really good terms with Zoe, he has never stopped poking the stone bear, wondering why a rock would want to eat a cookie in the first place. You can see where we are going with this- with a pet rock in question, it is obvious that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson would want to get in on the action by boasting about his Cheat Meal training.
Now, with the bout being scheduled, this is going to be the very first time that Dwayne Johnson has ever been a part of Sesame Street. And most of the fans have been wondering how epic the showdown would really be.
