Michelle Obama's Slam Dunk and 7 More of Her Silliest Celebrity Moments

Michelle Obama is not your typical first lady of the United States.
 
She might very possibly be the coolest first lady our great nation has ever seen.
 
Why? Well, for starters, because she slam dunks on LeBron James!

That is … all in the name of her "Let's Move!" health and fitness initiative. Michelle invited LeBron, along with his Miami Heat 2013 NBA champion teammates Dwyane Wade, Ryan Allen, Chris Bosh, and their coach, Erik Spoelstra, to the White House to film a PSA to help promote her fight against childhood obesity.
 
And to get her message across in the short video, which was unveiled on Tuesday, she joked around by video bombing the basketball superstars! First, LeBron and Michelle sneak up on Wade and Allen by crunching on apples in the background while Spoelstra is interviewing them. Then Bosh pops up drinking a glass of water while wearing a sly smirk. And lastly, LeBron and Michelle stage the faux slam dunk in the background.
