First Lady Michelle Obama plays a sideline reporter in a video with NFL star-turned White House chef Richard Sherman in a video promoting healthy eating:

"Well, let me tell you," Sherman shouts at Obama. "We the best chefs in the game. So when you try us with an easy meal like salmon cakes and succotash, that's the result you going to get."

"Wow, Richard, where'd you learn to do all this?" Obama asks. "I mean, corn, succotash, salmon cakes."

"Well, Ms. Obama, I know how important it is for everybody to eat right. And whether you're a pro-athlete or just a kid at school wanting a healthy meal, you got to put the right fuel in your body in order to perform at your best."

"I couldn't agree more, Richard," says Obama. "Thank you."

"Richard Sherman of the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks goes into the White House Kitchen to cook up something special," says the description.

The video is part of the Let's Move campaign, Michelle Obama's healthy eating initiative.
