Your eyes aren't deceiving you. That is the First Lady of the United States dancing with a turnip. It seems Michelle Obama not only eats her vegetables, she also dances with them.

Playing off of DJ Snake and Lil Jon's hit "Turn Down for What?", Obama did a Vine video where she cleverly changes the song's words to "turnip for what." That's when the head bobbing begins.

The video was in response to a President Barack Obama impersonator, Alphacat, who asked the First Lady via Vine: "How many calories do you burn every time you 'turn up'?! #AskTheFirstLady #LetsMove."

She responded: "Hey, Alphacat . The First Lady wants to know... #TurnipForWhat ? #AskTheFirstLady #TD4W."

Though Michelle didn't exactly answer the question, she did make turnips look cool.

This wouldn't be the first time the First Lady has promoted healthy living in a humorous way. Back in February, Michelle showed up on the "Ew!" show with host Sara (no "h") -- a.k.a. Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon dressed as a tween girl -- to talk kale chips and exercise.
