Beyonce has filmed a new version of her “Get Me Bodied” tune and renamed it “Work That Body” in support of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign to get school children active and eating better.

“It’s all about the benefits of healthy eating and exercise and what we want to do is make it fun by doing something we all like to do and that’s dance,” the 29-year-old said.

The music video will be broadcast in schools acrosss the U.S. on May 3. Check it out after the jump below.

    hrmmm…dancing is better than laying on a couch – but not much better…unless you’re dancing intensely for 3 hours per day. Reminds of my fat neighbor who thinks they are getting exercise when they mow the lawn. I wonder why he’s still fat? He’s been mowing that lawn for 15 years.

      “dancing is better than laying on a couch – but not much better…unless you’re dancing intensely for 3 hours per day.”

      WHAT?! Let’s assume that I am: 13, female, 150 lbs., and 5’2″. I would burn about 1700 calories by doing basically nothing. I decide to dance rather than sit down and watch TV; that could burn around 300 calories/hour. How is that “not much better”?
