Ellen and Michelle Obama Break It Down


– You’re doing something new
at the White House for the Easter Egg Roll,
right? – Yeah, well, in honor
of the fifth anniversary I’ve issued this challenge. We’re calling it “Gimme Five.” And we’re using the hashtag
“Gimme Five” on social media. And we’re asking folks
all across the country to give me five ways
they’re leading a healthy life. We’ve got a lot
of celebrities involved. Beyonce gave me five. And Ryan Seacrest. And Nick Jonas. And even the astronauts
on the space shuttle, the international
space shuttle got involved. And we’re gonna take over
the Easter Egg Roll this year with a Gimme Five dance. And actually the “So You Think
You Can Dance” all-stars… – Right. – Are coming to
the Easter Egg Roll to teach the whole South Lawn
this dance. And I have actually
challenged this woman right here to learn the Gimme Five dance. – Right. – And I hear you have
sort of been practicing. – I’ve been practicing
somewhat. I’m very busy.
Very, very busy. And I’m not really good
at choreography. I’m more of a free style,
kinda street dancer. – You’re more street? – I’m more street.
– Yeah, yeah. – But, you know, I have tried
to learn the dance. – Uh-huh. – And so if that’s
your challenge– You have learned the dance,
I assume? – Yeah, I’ve been– You know, I’m busy too,

– But I’ve taken– You know, backstage
I just sorta looked over, you know, and I thought, hmm, yeah,
maybe we can do this. If you’re up
for the challenge. – Yeah, the thing is
your people said you’ve been practicing
for a year, so… – My people? You think I have people? – Yeah, there were
so many people. Everyone was telling me.
– No. – Well, listen,
I’m in better shape than you, so what we’ll do is– [laughter] I mean, we know that from
the push-up competition. – Clearly. No, no, I won
