Watch Barack And Michelle Obama Zombie Dance To 'Thriller'

Michael Jackson might not have been impressed.

In a performance that likely left their daughters Malia and Sasha ghost white with embarrassment, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama tried dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” on Friday.

Dressed in casual clothes, the Obamas appeared onstage with several children during a Halloween celebration at the White House. With awkward zombie hands and a bit of stiff shimmying, the duo treated trick-or-treaters to their best mom and dad moves.

Watch the Obamas’ cheesy and adorable take on “Thriller” in the video above.
