Twitter Smack Down: First Lady & Jimmy Fallon

The comic throws down the gauntlet and asks First Lady for a re-do of their Let's Move! fitness challenge...
UPDATE: FLOTUS-Fallon "Mom Dancing" video 
First Lady Michelle Obama and talk show host Jimmy Fallon ribbed each other on Twitter on Friday afternoon ahead of Mrs. Obama's scheduled appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this evening to celebrate the third anniversary of her Let's Move! campaign. The comic threw down the gauntlet and proposed revisiting their Let's Move! fitness challenge from 2012--which Mrs. Obama won--and traded photos of their  competitive "game faces."  (Above)

"So honored to have @FLOTUS on the show tonight," Fallon tweeted.  "We’ve got to have a competition for her #LetsMove campaign and this time, I’m gonna win."

"I'll see you tonight @jimmyfallon.  Bring your game face! -mo," Mrs. Obama wrote on @FLOTUS.

Fallon responded with a photo of himself snarling, and tweeted "Here’s my game face. What’s yours?"  Mrs. Obama responded with her own photo, writing "Game on, Jimmy. See you soon! -mo."

Mrs. Obama traveled to New York on Friday to film her interview with Fallon and two other TV shows.  She heads out on a three-state tour for the anniversary next week, and will visit Illinois, Mississippi and Missouri.

On Thursday, Mrs. Obama exchanged tweets with Big Bird after the White House unveiled three new videos for the third anniversary. CLICK HERE for links to all third anniversary posts.
