Recently, the Harlem Shake has been blowing up the Internet, inspiring groups of friends and strangers to unite for one purpose: to make a hilarious dance video. However, recently the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama decided to break the trend and do a different kind of dancing. Together with pal Jimmy Fallon, the duo proceeded to cut a rug and demonstrate “The Evolution of Mom Dancing” on Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night show.
Fallon and Obama teamed up to get down to classic moves such as the “Go Shopping, Get Groceries”, the “Sprinkler”, and the “Raise the Roof”, but then surprised us (in a good way) with new moves like, the “Just the Hands Part of Single Ladies,” “Oh My God, I Love This Song” and our personal favorite, the “Where’s Your Father? (Get Him Back Here!)”. Fallon, dressed in drag, had to quit when Mrs. Obama out-danced him in performing the “Dougie”.
The First Lady had reason to dance, and that was to promote awareness and participation in her “Let’s Move” campaign to inspire parents and children to exercise, run around, and stay healthy to combat obesity. We embrace this cause, love FLOTUS and Fallon, and think tonight’s exercise might be a dance party with our family and friends. Get active with us!
