The White House and ‘Funny or Die’ partner up again with FLOTUS cameo

The Obamas are proving to be quite the fans of comedy Web site “Funny or Die.” First lady Michelle Obama, following in her husband’s footsteps, has now made her own cameo, of course, promoting her healthy eating initiatives.

In the video, FLOTUS, starring as herself, opts for a bowl of carrots while watching a faux movie trailer about junk-food zombies. The flick stars young heartthrobs Chloe Grace Moretz and Tyler Posey (Chosen by Sasha and Malia?) and gives away a bit too much of the movie for Obama’s tastes.

“Don’t you hate when trailers give away the whole movie?” the first lady scoffs to her girlfriends. “Can we just watch ‘Frozen’ again?”

It’s no surprise the White House again opted to team up with “Funny or Die.” President Obama’s March appearance on “Between Two Ferns” was a big win for that saw a 40 percent spike in traffic after the video’s release.

“Funny or Die” co-founder Will Ferrell also co-starred with FLOTUS in a Let’s Move PSA earlier this year.
