Michelle Obama has got game.
The First Lady unleashed a monster dunk right in the face of Miami Heat star LeBron James, a posterization that is being featured in a viral video for Michelle’s “Let’s Move” campaign.
The video also includes photobombing from fellow Heat star Chris Bosh and appearances from Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen, but it was Michelle Obama who stole the show with her dunk.
The First Lady’s dunk is also capitalizing on a new viral trend, “Posterizing,” in which someone puts a mini-hoop above an unsuspecting person’s head so another person can dunk on them.
The “Let’s Move” campaign has been the major initiative for Michelle Obama, a program meant to combat obesity by promoting better food and fitness decisions.
Last year Michelle Obama embarked on a tour to celebrate the three-year anniversary of the campaign, appearing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and filming a segment with Robin Roberts that will air on Good Morning America. She also taped an episode of The Dr. Oz Show alongside Education Secretary Arne Duncan, who himself was a college basketball player.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat visited the White House last week, hosted by President Obama after winning their second straight NBA champion. Though Michelle Obama may have made headlines for her dunk, Barack Obama also got in on some of the fun with the team.
At the end of his remarks to the team, Obama poked fun at guard Mario Chalmers, who has been yelled at more than a few times by LeBron James and other teammates for blown assignments.
“And with that, I think we should take a picture, but we should make it quick before one of these guys starts yelling at Mario,” Obama said. “I mean, sometimes it’s just a bad pass, guys. It’s not Mario’s fault. I got your back, man.”
The Michelle Obama dunk video was not the only commercial produced during the Heat’s visit. The team’s stars also sat in with their coach and the FIrst Lady to extol the virtues of eating apples.
