WASHINGTON (AP) — First Lady Michelle Obama, hammed it up with Jimmy Fallon, the new host of NBC’s “Tonight Show.”

She took part in a skit with Fallon and Will Ferrell, who were both dressed as pre-teen girls on a fictional show called “Ew.” Introduced as herself, Mrs. Obama talked about the importance of a good diet and exercise while Ferrell kissed a picture of himself.

In the regular guest segment, she talked about life in the White House, as well as her Let’s Move exercise initiative.

She’s encouraging Americans to demonstrate how they’re exercising. She says –quote — “We want people to Facebook it, Tweet it, Instagram it.” The hashtag is #LetsMove.

If there’s enough response, Mrs. Obama says President Barack Obama and maybe Vice President Joe Biden “will show us how they move.”

She also promoted her husband’s health care law, encouraging young people to enroll before the end of March deadline.
