*Super Bowl champs can cook, too?
Naw, not really. But Seahawks star Richard Sherman is not afraid to act like he can; especially since he’s joining Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas and First Lady Michelle Obama in a video to promote healthy school lunches.
The video was posted on Thursday and was filmed as part of Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. The campaign is designed to fight childhood obesity. Obama plays a sideline reporter in the video, telling Sherman to “take me through your final plate.”
“We’re the best chefs in the game,” Sherman yells in a parody of his famed postgame rant, “so when you try us with an easy meal like salmon cakes and succotash, that’s the result you’re going to get.”
Wilson and Thomas appear as sous chefs to Sherman, who wasn’t afraid to show off some of his football skills in the video, too.
“This succotash got a little kick to it,” Thomas says while sampling the dish. “Hey sir, could you throw me a bottle of water, please?”
But Sherman runs over and intercepts the tossed bottle, to which Wilson replies, “He’s always doing that!”
The video was filmed during the team’s visit to the White House on May 21.
