Michelle Obama funky dunk

First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, since its inception in 2010, has done its best to promote an active lifestyle amongst children, teens and young adults; and along the way, it’s attracted plenty of celebrity support though sadly lil’ TerRio has yet to partner up with her. The FLOTUS recruited the reigning NBA champion Miami Heat to help in the first promos of the year for Let’s Move, as they paid a visit to the White House last week to be formally congratulated by President Barack Obama on their championship.

But though the fight against childhood obesity is a serious matter, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun in our efforts to combat it. Case in point – the video below, which is a clip of Mrs. Obama and the Heat’s upcoming promotional commercial. As Coach Erik Spoelstra interviews Ray Allen and Dwyane Wade in the White House, LeBron James seems to be holding up a basketball goal in the background. It’s confusing until the FLOTUS comes out of nowhere and throws down a monster dunk on the net, breaking up the interview with a mean mug as nasty as the dunk and LeBron mouthing “In yo’ face!” You can’t help but laugh at it… especially when Chris Bosh, not to be outdone, creeps into the camera afterwards.

We already knew that President Obama could hoop, but now we know Michelle is a baller, too. Makes you wonder if Sasha and/or Malia have WNBA superstar potential in their genes.
