One of FLOTUS' biggest priorities has been to raise awareness of childhood obesity and encourage healthy eating and exercise, so it makes sense that "Funny or Die's" Billy Eichner is conducting his latest "Billy on the Street" in -- where else? -- the produce section of a supermarket. Also, Big Bird is in attendance to remind the youth to #eatbrighter.
