Sportacus White House Commercial Released

Sportacus White House Commercial Released

Published July 26, 2012

The commercial that Magnús Scheving, in his role as Sportacus from Lazy Town, shot with Michelle Obama has been released.
As reported, Magnús and Obama have worked together before. Two years ago, they also shot an event together for US Soccer in Washington. Of the new commercial, Magnús said that the director had to make some changes within the White House, as the characteristic leaping and jumping that Sportacus does could endanger White House furniture.
The commercial has now been released for the public, and is a part of the White House’s Let’s Move campaign, which encourages children to exercise. Magnús, who created Lazy Town for this reason, was more than happy to take part.
You can watch the commercial below:
