Kids, Jay Pharoah wants you to go to college. But if the Saturday Night Live star’s raps can’t quite deliver the needed inspiration to apply, he’s brought some back-up to help convince you — First Lady Michelle Obama.

Pharoah and Obama appear together in CollegeHumor’s “Go to College” music video, bringing their best moves and most inspiring lyrics to the White House and, they hope, the kids of America. Though Pharoah leads the charge on the song, though Obama steals the show with her own interlude, calling back to her time growing up on the South Side of Chicago. And whether it’s wanting to learn astronomy or write as great rhymes as Pharoah and Obama, the two make a strong case for, well, going to college.
