Things got pretty intense on Twitter Monday after the social media team behind “Sesame Street” asked fans a rather simple question.

The official account posed the Q: “You’re stuck on a deserted island and you can pick one of these ‘Sesame Street’ friends to come with you. Who are you picking and why?”

It wasn’t long before Twitter users were answering in droves, with the likes of director Joss Whedon and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt even getting involved.

Despite numerous people going with Elmo, others came up with pretty good reasons why Oscar should be the chosen one.

Director Eric Haywood insisted, “Oscar so we could hate on everything together.”

Writer Justin Kirkland, on the other hand, went with Cookie Monster because he’s “better eating” if worst came to worst.
