Md. 4th-Grader Shushes First Lady In TV Ad

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A fourth-grader from Frederick gets to shush the first lady in a new public-service announcement promoting Michelle Obama’s national fitness campaign, Let’s Move.

Nine-year-old Alexa Orlando’s mother said Wednesday that Mrs. Obama’s involvement was kept secret from the participating families until the night before the video was shot last month.

The one-minute spot shows Mrs. Obama watching a tennis match between Alexa and another girl. Alexa shushes the First Lady to make her stop talking during Alexa’s serve.

Mrs. Obama silently mouths the word, “Sorry.”

    I’d shush Michelle , if I were watching Lucy reruns.
    And if she dare talk during an old Three Stooges episode,
    well then, she might receive the ol’ Moe Howard eye poke

    I’m glad she’s promoting fitness. I think the main problem with our country is that everyone has gotten so lazy. Gotta have everything right now. We huff and puff if anything inconveniences us or we have to go out of our way. The worst part is that we are raising a generation of children with this sense of entitlement. They think everything should just be handed to them and they should have whatever they want when they want it. Maybe someday this laziness will change.

    I don’t care for the Obama politics, but this is a good ad showing powerful but well disciplined children.
