Elmo loses it on a pet rock

Even laid back Elmo has his breaking point.

A hilarious and cathartic video is making the rounds showing Elmo losing his cool over a pet rock.

It starts with Elmo playing with his two friends until one of them, Zoe, reveals her pet rock “Rocko.”

Elmo gets annoyed when he has to act like Rocko’s alive.

Rocko doesn’t talk, Rocko doesn’t jump, and Rocko certainly doesn’t eat cookies.

Watch what happens when Rocko cookie blocks Elmo from his oatmeal raisin. We hear ya buddy!

Elmo later went on Twitter, explaining that he and Zoe made up and are still best friends. But it’s a different story with Rocko.

Michael Keaton explains why he never made a third Batman movie

Michael Keaton walked away from the role of Batman because he didn’t like the film’s new direction.

Keaton played the role of Bruce Wayne AKA “Batman” in the 1989 and 1991 films, which Tim Burton directed.

However, there was a drastic change when it came time to film the third film.

On an episode of “In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast,” Keaton revealed that incoming director Joel Schumacher had a different take on the franchise.

Keaton explains, “Schumacher asked me, ‘I don’t understand why everything has to be so dark and everything so sad.’ “
And I went, ‘Wait a minute, do you know how this guy got to be Batman? I mean, it’s pretty simple.'”

Schumacker went on to direct Batman Forever in 1995, starring Val Kilmer, and Batman & Robin in 1997, starring George Clooney.

All these years later, Keaton will wear the cape again in “The Flash” coming out November 2022, and HBO Max’s “Batgirl.”

Original Happy version of “Don’t Speak” leaks

Don’t Speak by No Doubt was a song that spoke to many of us going through heartbreak, so it’s tough to imagine it being a song about love and marriage.

A video has resurfaced of the original version, and surprise! It’s a love song!

We know the sad 1994 version was about the breakup between Gwen Stefani and Bassist Tony Kanal.

The original, love-struck version must have been written before they broke up.

Here’s a sample of the lyrics.

I can see it all in an eyeblink
I know everything about how you are
I can understand exactly how you think
Between you and me it’s not very far
Side by side, you and I
With many many years behind us
You let words pass us by
Because we’re always together
And we will be forever
Such a special treasure, you and I
