The Obamas saw out their final White House Halloween party in memorable style Monday with a goofy re-enactment of the dance from Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ and a marathon candy-distribution session to dozens of kids in fancy dress.
Michelle, wearing a striking yellow-and-brown dress, and Obama, clad in a comfy, Halloween-appropriate grey-shirt-black-dad-sweater combo, stepped up to the stage before a crowd of local and military kids.
‘We’ve been working on a little dance. We don’t know how it’s going to go, but we think we should all just try it anyway,’ Obama said before the pair broke into a performance of Michael Jackson’s’Thriller’ that made up in charm what it lacked in slickness.
The First Couple also handed out candy to local children and the kids of military personnel on the White House lawn – and got a cheeky surprise from a young boy dressed as a ‘lame duck’.
