Getting the word out about healthy eating with @KingJames, @DwyaneWade, @ChrisBosh and Ray Allen. #LetsMove,

The advertisement premiered on Good Morning America this morning and featured Miami Heat MVP LeBron James holding up a toy basketball hoop for Obama’s videobomb turned slam dunk behind coach Erik Spoelstra and guards Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen. The look on Wade’s face is priceless. 


The Heat have a curious history with photobombing.  In May 2012, center Chris Bosh made Internet history when he appeared out of nowhere during a TNT telecast of an interview with James following a 104-94 playoff victory over the New York Knicks. Here it is again for good measure.
