The clip lasts no more than a few seconds. But that hasn't stopped this Vine video from reaching pop-culture status. In a new video posted to the White House's Vine account, first lady Michelle Obama asks "Turnip for What?" while dancing with her veggie. The clip is a spoof of the popular tune "Turn Down For What" by DJ Snake & Lil Jon. Take a look:
This isn't the first time the first lady has shared her love of healthy eating. Through her Let's Move campaign, she has been an outspoken advocate for improving the health of families and children around the country. She planted a vegetable garden at the White House, introduced new nutrition labels for food, and she even made a cameo appearance in the Funny or Die clip "Snackpocalypse," about the dangers of eating too much junk food.
In celebration of Farm to School Month this October, she's apparently now busting out her dance moves and celebrating with her veggies.
