'Cheesetastic' '90s-style Easter Egg roll promo from first lady's 'Let's Move' campaign

No, it's not an episode of 'Saved by the Bell'

The Sideshow

First lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" anti-obesity campaign released a totally '90s video promoting the White House's forthcoming Easter Egg roll.

Creators of the video used radical graphics and standard-def 4:3 footage to make the promo look like a '90s sitcom. But instead of "Saved by the Bell" stars Mario Lopez and Tiffani Amber Thiessen, this "show" features Jim Carrey, Bo and Sunny, the "first dogs," Michelle and Barack Obama, Ariana Grande, and, last but never least, Cookie Monster.

The party will take place April 21 on the White House South Lawn and will be live-streamed for those unable to attend.

Online reaction to the delightfully cheeseball promo was, to use a phrase appropriate to the era depicted, "hella positive."

 

Creating videos to look like '90s sitcoms has been a popular online pursuit for sometime. Classic examples include tributes to "Breaking Bad" and "Lost."
