The #1 YouTube video last week was Beyoncé's "Move Your Body" music video, even though her video had no special effects, costume changes, or celebrity guests. Beyoncé worked her magic and made Michelle Obama's fight against childhood obesity look cooler and more fashionable than ever before. The pop chart diva revamped her 2007 hit "Get Me Bodied," and dubbed the new version "Move Your Body" in support of the first lady's "Let's Move!" healthy eating campaign.
In the following behind-the-scenes clip, students discuss their struggles to make better eating choices, and Beyoncé explains her desire to help spread Michelle Obama's encouraging message. "It's all about promoting the benefits of healthy eating and exercise," she said. "But what we want to do is make it fun by doing something that we all love to do. And that's dance."
Now let's watch the video!
What did you think of Beyonce's video? Do you think Michelle Obama's fight against childhood obesity will be successful and/or make a difference? Will Beyonce's support help her campaign?
