In advance of Monday's "fireside hangout" with the first lady, Google-plus is airing YouTube ads to promote her Let's Move! initiative and their joint session.

The ads are ending up in some interesting places. Secrets clicked a tweet from Beretta guns, for example, and up popped the ad that features the first lady worrying about how one-third of America's children are chubby or obese and that "it's time for us to act because this isn't who we are." Once over, the Beretta YouTube about a new semi-automatic pistol displayed.

Google-plus released these details about the hangout:
