While addressing a crowd at the United Nations in New York yesterday, Michelle Obama let drop that she had just appeared on Sesame Street. And she was absolutely giddy from the experience. “I’m thrilled to be here, but I was just at ‘Sesame Street’ — I’m sorry,” the First Lady said. “And I never thought I’d be on ‘Sesame Street’ with Elmo and Big Bird and I was thrilled. I’m still thrilled. I’m on a high.”
Michelle taped the PSA as part of Sesame Workshop’s Healthy Habits For Life Initiative. Mrs. Obama and longtime Sesame Street resident Elmo chatted about the importance of eating right, exercising regularly, and being a healthy and positive role model for kids.
“I think it’s probably the best thing I’ve done so far in the White House. But we were there talking about nutrition and healthy eating, and it’s just been a thrill.”
Look for the PSA to come out soon.
