Watch Obama and Biden jog around the West Wing to a disco beat

YouTube

The White House wants you to know that President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden exercise just like the rest of us — by jogging around the West Wing, in a suit and tie, with 1970s action-movie music playing in the background. This documented stylized exercise routine is a gift for people who have shared their own physical activity with the world under First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move challenge (#LetsMove, if you're wondering how to share your own).

At the end, we find out the real reason they're jogging all over the White House — their wives. Maybe they aren't so different than the rest of us after all. --Peter Weber
