Jimmy Kimmel and Julia Louis-Dreyfus squat for Joe Biden

Posted on


After performing “a million arm curls” for FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign, VP Joe Biden took to Twitter to challenge former TV VP Julia Louis-Dreyfus to #GimmeFive exercises. The Veep star accepted the challenge on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, enlisting the late night host to help her complete the task. “You could get me to do anything right now,” he joked.

After deciding that simple squats were just too easy (side note: they really aren’t), the fictional VP-turned-president ups the stakes with a piggyback. Ditching the heels but still confined by a knee-length dress, she climbs onto Kimmel’s desk before hopping onto his back. Things start off rocky—Kimmel nearly tumbles face forward—but he manages to steady himself. 

With roars from the audience and a heart-pumping soundtrack from the band, he completes the task. No fictional presidents were harmed in the making of the video below.
