To help promote the 4th anniversary of the first lady's “Let's Move!”, Michelle Obama has teamed with comic Will Ferrell to host a YouTube focus group on the dos and don'ts of eating healthy and getting a good-looking body.

Patterned somewhat after the popular AT&T cute kids ads, Ferrell has fun with kids and his own diet as the first lady plays the straight man.

“Is diet cola a veggie,” asks Ferrell as kids laughed. “What’s so funny?”

When he asks for tricks to eating right, the first lady says, “It’s not about tricks. Getting a good body and staying healthy is about dedication, consistency and eating right.”

Ferrell deadpans: “So no entire honey-baked hams?”
