Michelle Obama Out-Dunks the Heat

It’s got to be tough to make an engaging commercial for Let’s Move, or First Lady Michelle Obama‘s fitness initiative for kids. Thankfully, someone allowed FLOTUS and guest stars from the Miami Heat to have a little fun with it; the resulting GIF pretty much ensures that it will go viral for a day or so.

Will this spot encourage more kids to exercise and eat their vegetables? Maybe not, but the fact that Obama just got her AARP card does indeed make it much cooler.
