Watch Michelle and Barack Obama in a hilarious sketch for the Let's Move campaign

Barack and Michelle Obama may be the President and First Lady of the United States, but they’re also amateur comedians. Proving once more that they’re able to laugh at themselves – and endearing the public yet again – the couple partook in a funny video in honour of the fifth anniversary of the health and fitness-oriented Let’s Move campaign.

As Michelle addresses the camera in the cute clip, explaining the programme, her husband ambles in oblivious to the presentation on a hunt for his blue tie. “What’s going on here?” he asks.

Michelle tells him that it’s an important anniversary – at which the President pretends to look terrified, clearly thinking he’s forgotten a milestone in their relationship.

The mother-of-two takes pity on him and explains that she has launched #GimmeFive, a call to action asking people to think of five ways to be healthy that they can incorporated into their daily routine.

The camera cuts away to show Barack jogging on to stage to give a speech and picking up babies, in a gag that suggests that’s how politicians keep fit.

Finally, the sketch ends with Michelle shaking her head in despair and points to his tie on the ground. Her husband drops to pick it up and decides to do some press ups.

Despite their serious roles, the Obamas enjoy larking about for the cameras. When Barack appeared on Ellen DeGeneres chat show recently he jokingly accused his hostess of pulling cheap stunt by serving celebrities pizza like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the 2014 Oscars.

When his wife appeared on the show on another occasion she was persuaded by Ellen to join her in a press ups challenge. Michelle won by managing 25. The First Lady often hula hoops and takes part in races to encourage youngsters to get fit.
