Spoof video skewers opponents of first lady’s healthy lunch program

Spoof video skewers opponents of first lady’s healthy lunch program

Judging from the reaction of school districts across the country, there is nothing funny about Michelle Obama’s efforts to dictate what schoolchildren can and can’t eat for lunch. One recent report out of Kentucky reveals a dramatic drop in the number of students buying school lunch and adds that many who do end up tossing their beansprout parfaits in the trash.

The folks at Funny or Die have nevertheless developed a spoof trailer for a non-existent feature film that sends up opponents of the first lady’s “Let’s Move!” campaign.

Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering introduces the spoof, writing:

[It opens] with a school president who vows to return pizza, candy, and snack food to the school if elected, but after doing so the students turn into zombies.

The video spoofs films popular with students like The Hunger Games and Divergent.

According to the “trailer,” only one girl is healthy enough to break open the health snack food vending machine to save the world, while belching junk food-eating zombies collapse or stumble around the halls.

At the end of the clip, the camera pulls back to show Michelle Obama and two friends sitting on the couch, watching the trailer.

“Don’t you hate when trailers give away the whole movie?” Obama says as she crunches on carrots. “Can we just watch Frozen again?”
