Clip of the Day: The First Lady and First (Big) Bird Talk Snacks

Michelle Obama is kicking off the third year of her Let’s Move campaign by palling around the White House with Big Bird. Two PSAs starring the pair were released today, one focusing on the ease of healthy snacking, the other on exercise. The yellow-feathered Sesame Street star is a perennial hit with the kids, but he also, in a way, owes his job to the First Lady’s husband. Is this Public Service also a debt repaid? Either way, lending that nasal-y voice to Obama’s health and nutrition initiative can only help the cause.
