First lady Michelle Obama, who has drafted entertainers and athletes for anti-obesity "Let's Move" videos promoting physical fitness, has two new stars in her latest production: Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

The president and vice president are shown jogging around the White House -- in dress shirts and ties, no less -- as an old theme from Monday Night Football plays on the soundtrack.

The video opens with Biden entering the Oval Office, and asking Obama: "Mr. President, you ready to move?"

"Absolutely," Obama replies. "Let's do this thing -- Let's move!"

After their "run," Obama and Biden return to the Oval Office.

"Man, you're hard to keep up with," Biden tells the president.

Obama returns the favor, telling his veep: "You looked good out there."

Glasses of water wait on the desk.

"After a good workout, you got to drink up," Obama says, noting both his wife, Michelle, and Biden's wife, Jill, back the "Let's Move" program.

"Otherwise," Obama tells Biden, "we are going to be in trouble with Jill and Michelle."

As they clink glasses, Obama asks: "Same time, next week?"

"Same time next week," Biden says.
