Surprise: Lil Jon and DJ Snake are a hit in the White House.

YouTube personality Iman Crosson posed a question to first lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday: "How many calories do you burn every time you 'turn up'?!"

Hours later, Mrs. Obama did exactly what any health-minded, diet-conscious first lady in 2014 is bound to do: turn "turn up" into "turnip" and then just vibe out to "Turn Down for What" — incidentally the same song that just got viral video-fied into a call for young people to vote.

Michelle Obama's post, which is on the White House's official Vine account, has been looped more than 5.6 million times in less than 12 hours. It's also been Liked more than 37,000 times and revined at least 28,000 times.
