Celebrities and athletes have gotten involved in first lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign by appearing in videos showing them being active — and now her husband and Vice President Joe Biden have joined in.

The effort shows President Barack Obama and Biden jogging in and outside the White House, wearing their dress shirts and ties, while the old "Monday Night Football" theme plays, reports USA Today.

In the video, Biden walks into the Oval Office and asks Obama, "Mr. President, you ready to move?"

And Obama replies "Let's do this thing — let's move!"

Story continues below video.



The men are shown running past staff members and even the Obama family's two dogs before returning to the Oval Office to gulp down glasses of water and compliment each other.

"Man, you're hard to keep up with," Biden says, to which Obama replies, "You looked good out there."

They drink their water and Obama notes that if they don't, they'll be in trouble with their wives. 

The video is part of the White House's social media campaign marking the fourth anniversary of the first lady's fitness and nutrition program, reports Politico.

Michelle Obama appeared on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" as part of this year's kick-off, even getting some laughs of her own in a tween girl-themed sketch alongside host Jimmy Fallon and special guest star Will Ferrell.

The first lady also dished on her daughters, and encouraged "knucklehead" young people to sign up for Obamacare.

The first lady has asked Americans to show off their moves by posting photos on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram of themselves exercising and being active. She promised if enough people got involved, her husband and Biden would join in, reports Politico.
