Michelle Obama Plugs Healthy Eating With “Turnip” Dance

October 15, 2014

"Turnip for what?"

First Lady Michelle Obama is all about getting Americans to eat healthier foods, so it feels fitting that at some point she’d bring her healthy eating campaign to the “Vine” app.  Getting Americans to eat turnips might prove a tough sell, but she’s giving it her all in this six-second spoof video, her take on the DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s summer hit “Turn Down for What.”

The video was shot in response to a Vine vid featuring an Obama impersonator who asked the First Lady how many calories she burns when she “turns up.” The First Lady is no stranger to using media appearances to promote her healthy eating campaign. Most recently she's be pushing the cause through appearances on "The Biggest Loser" and "Parks and Recreation." 

Watch the First Lady get down with a turnip here.
