First Lady Michelle Obama has teamed up with Jay Pharoah of “Saturday Night Live” and College Humor to promote a rap video urging kids to go to college, sparking a meme about other #flotusbars. And yes, she actually raps in the video.

“South Side Chicago, we all know / We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow,” the First Lady raps. (Soak that in for a moment: The First Lady raps!) “And everyone could really make their dream true / Hey kid, listening in Michigan that could be you!”

The video includes cameos by a talking portrait of George Washington, as well as a TIME magazine cover! It ends by directing viewers to BetterMakeRoom.org, a group that encourages young people to get educations.

Twitter users responded with jokes about other fictional Michelle Obama rap lyrics, tagged with the hashtag #flotusbars.
