Michelle Obama Plays ‘Ariana Grande or Eating a Carrot?’ on ‘Billy on the Street’ [VIDEO]by Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
If you’ve never before seen an episode of the comedy game show, Billy on the Street, allow us to introduce it to you in all its bizarre hilarity. Comedian Billy Eichner hosts the show, which typically consists of his running up to random people on the streets of New York City to ask questions about various pop culture topics. For the first episode to air in 2015, Billy had some truly memorable guest-stars on the show — Michelle Obama, Big Bird and even recurring contestant, Elena, joined him in a grocery store in Washington, D.C. to play a new game called ‘Ariana Grande or a Eating a Carrot?’
In case you’re wondering what the First Lady was doing hanging out a grocery store in D.C., we’ll fill you in. As part of her Eat Brighter campaign, the First Lady is using her platform to encourage children and their families to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their daily diets in an attempt to live a more healthy lifestyle. So when Billy asks Michelle which is better, Ariana Grande or eating a carrot, we weren’t surprised she chose eating a carrot.
Our favorite part of the whole video? Elena’s reaction to meeting Michelle was pretty priceless, and so were her comments about One Direction. But the best part might be the FLOTUS Bonus Round, where Big Bird and the First Lady slow dance together while Billy sings “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith. Or maybe the best part is when the First Lady is forced to push Billy, in a shopping cart, down a grocery store aisle while he recites Gwyneth Paltrow‘s acceptance speech from when she won an Oscar for Best Actress for Shakespeare in Love.
But we really can’t do the video justice — check it out above and let us know what you think!
