*President Obama apparently has some competition.
Michelle Obama ended up slow dancing with “Sesame Street’s” Big Bird on the latest episode of “Billy on the Street,” the wacky ambush game show hosted by the always on-one Billy Eichner.
If you haven’t seen the Funny or Die-produced show on Fuse, Eichner literally screams crazy questions or commands to random people on the street, and rewards the answers to his liking with dollar bills before running off to ambush another random contestant.
FLOTUS participated to promote her new “Eat Brighter Campaign,” which puts Sesame Street characters on fruits and vegetables to encourage young children to make healthier food choices.
Eichner grilled the First Lady in the produce section of a Washington D.C. supermarket with fellow contestant Big Bird and “Billy on the Street” fan favorite, Elena. One of the questions… “What is better, Ariana Grande or eating a carrot?”
Not only do we get to see the First Lady and Big Bird slow dance while Eichner sings Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” (because Eichner ordered them do it), but FLOTUS also pushed the host around in a shopping cart while he read Gwyneth Paltrow’s Best Actress Oscar acceptance speech.
We also found out that President Obama watches SportsCenter in his free time.
“If I want to talk to him, I have to know a lot about football, or basketball, or whatever it is,” said Mrs. Obama.
The First Lady ended up winning the game and received a huge picture of Ariana Grande’s ponytail as her prize.
“That ponytail is pretty nice,” Obama said.
