Michelle Obama Plays Along With Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell in Crazy ‘Tonight Show’ Sketch

First Lady Michelle Obama, appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” during its premiere week, went a step further than merely a sit down interview and appeared in a sketch where Fallon and Will Ferrell appeared as adolescent girls hosting a TV show called “Ew!”

The first lady mainly played it straight as Fallon and Ferrell, in drag, spoofed teenage girls’ quirks. When she appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” last year, she danced with Fallon, in a skit called “Evolution of Mom Dancing” that became a viral hit. She also danced in Thursday’s sketch, albeit briefly, while devoting many of her lines to promotion of healthy eating and exercise. Her Let’s Move initiative has been one of her signature campaigns as first lady.

Later, when being interviewed by Fallon, she talked about their daughters’ own adolescence, quipping that even though their father is president, “they want nothing to do with us. I am so serious.”

The sketch is below.
