First Lady Michelle Obama swooped in for a dunk behind Miami Heat players giving healthy living tips for a "Let's Move" ad and drew laughs, but that wasn't her only videobomb appearance.

In addition to the dunk, the video shows Obama popping up to crunch an apple as Ray Allen and Dwyane Wade offered tips that will help kids be better athletes. Also featured were LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and head coach Erick Spoelstra.

Obama may have earned herself a new nickname — Air FLOTUS — which showed up in comment sections and on a Yahoo Sports article.

As with anything involving politics, comments on the video ranged from loved it to “what a lack of class,” but most came down on the positive side.

“You might not like them but you gotta admit..the Obama's are cool as hell,” one person wrote. Another said, “seriously, has there ever been a better 1st lady???”

The first lady, who turned 50 last week, has made fighting childhood obesity her priority. Her “Let’s Move” campaign focuses on getting kids away from the television set and into active play. In a 2013 speech, she challenged parents to set an example.

“We as parents are our children's first and best role models, and this is particularly true when it comes to their health,” US News quoted Obama’s keynote speech at a health summit. “We can't lie around on the couch eating French fries and candy bars, and expect our kids to eat carrots and run around the block. But too often, that's exactly what we're doing.”
