Michelle Obama Does ‘Ew!’ with Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell on ‘Tonight Show’ [Video]

Only an “Ew!” girl would ask the First Lady, “Okay Michelle, so like, what’s up?”

First lady Michelle Obama joined Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell last night on The Tonight Show for some talk — or to be more exact, some valley girl “Ew!” talk.

The actor, in drag, preform the show’s teen host, and Ferrell plays her friend. Their catch-phrase is “ew!” Michelle visits their basement set to talk about the Olympics and her favorite topics, exercising and healthy eating.

“Exercise is not ‘ew,’” the first lady told the teens, copying their Valley Girl-esque twang. “You just have to find an exercise that’s right for you.”

The first lady was something of the straight woman to the comedians’ over-the-top antics, but she gamely joined in with the trio for an  ”‘Ew’ dance party!”

After the scene Obama joined the host, talking about her daughters. Michelle revealed that her girls weren’t impressed by the perks of White House living, and that she’s trying to keep their lives as normal as possible, including teaching 15 year-old Malia to drive.

“I tell people — the staff and the Secret Service that when we’re out of here in a few years, they’ve got to be able to function as normal people, and driving is a part of that,” she said, contemplating Malia behind the wheel. “Ladies and gentlemen of DC, watch out!”

The first lady also said some words of her “Let’s Move” anti-obesity campaign and for getting young people to sign up for Obamacare.

“Young people are knuckleheads,” Obama said. “They’re the ones cooking for the first time and slicing their fingers… dancing on the barstools.”

By the way, this was Fallon’s first week taking over the extra popilar show. The new host has already proved his chops with a slew of major guests and repurposing other old Late Night sketches like the “hashtag convos.”

Jimmy Fallon marked his New York debut with top guests like Will Smith and U2 stopping by.

When he hit the stage, Fallon introduced himself saying: “I am Jimmy Fallonand I will be your host – for now.”  The funnyman then spoke for a few minute about his childhood, his family, his career. He was pretty subdued through it all.

“I just want to do the best I can and take care of this show for a while and if you guys let me stick around long enough, maybe I’ll get the hang of it,” he said. “My goal is to make you laugh so you go to sleep with a smile on your face and live a longer life.”

Finally, after all the formalities were out of the way, he re-entered the show through the gigantic blue curtains and started his show with the usual monologue making everyone understand that he’s a grateful heir to “TheTonight Show” throne.

Even with celebrity cameos of Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Robert De Niro, and many other, as well as high-profile guests like Will Smith and the band U2, Mr. Fallon’s debut was more sweet than sassy, says The NY Times.

“To my buddy who said that I’d never be the host of ‘The Tonight Show,’ and you know who you are,” Fallon said, “you owe me a hundred bucks, buddy.”
