Michelle Obama doesn’t know which Chris Chris Evans is

Michelle Obama has been promoting her organization When We All Vote and encouraging Americans to not only vote but get involved in the political process. She recently did a collaboration with black owned business The Lip Bar, helping promote Bawse Voter, a power red matte lipstick in which partial profits go to WWAV.

Forever FLOTUS Michelle O appeared on the Black Frasier podcast hosted by 2 Dope Queens alum and comedienne, Phoebe Robinson. During the podcast she played a classier version of FMK called Vacation, Quarantine, Zoom where she had to choose which Chris (Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, or Chris Rock) she’d vacation, quarantine or Zoom with. The segment became hilarious when she had to ask which one was Chris Evans, who coincidentally had a NSFW mishap last week on his Instagram. Here are some quotes from EW:

Appearing on the Black Frasier podcast on Friday with host Phoebe Robinson, the Becoming author was asked to choose between Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Chris Rock in a game of Vacation, Quarantine, Zoom (a “classier” version of F—, Marry, Kill). Her immediate reply was: “OK, all right. Now, who’s Chris Evans again?”

Once she was made aware he was the one who plays Captain America, she chose him as the Chris she would go on vacation with, a choice that has only become more popular ever since the actor’s recent NSFW social media gaffe (though this episode was taped before Evans unintentionally shared more of himself than expected with his Instagram followers).

So many people say the Chrises (the white ones specifically) are interchangeable. They are not. They are very different and I stand by that. With that being said, I disagree with Michelle, I think Chris Evans would be a great Quarantine buddy. I think there’d be a lot of snuggling, cooking and pranks. I’d probably vacation with Chris Rock because it would just be a fun damn time and Chris Hemsworth would be the Zoom call. I still can’t get a read on his personality but he is nice on the eyes.

At least Michelle recognized Chris’s most iconic role so it is not a complete wash. Now it would be cool to see them do an interview with each other about their political endeavors. It was also cute how Michelle and Phoebe thought of each other as honorary cousins because they share a surname. I really miss Michelle O. and seeing her this often the last few months has been a sort of balm in this chaotic climate. Plus she is out here living her best life, wearing her hair natural, and looking moisturized. Which Chris would you Quarantine, Vacation or Zoom with?

    Hint: it’s best Chris

  2. Lightpurple says:

    I would switch vacation and quarantine. Hemsworth could teach me to surf. Evans, Dodger, and I would be watching the NBA playoffs together. Go Celtics!

  3. janey says:

    Pine, Pine and Pine.

  4. Josie Bean says:

    I would go on holiday with Chris Rock – some of his comedy routines are very clever. Also, he did a film entitled “Good Hair” which I found utterly fascinating.

    Michelle’s natural hair looks great! She is a class act.

  5. Aoife says:

    Hemsworth. The others don’t even come close.

  6. Michelle Connolly says:

    It’s clearly Pine that is the best Chris.

    I told my partner about the ‘The Best Chris’ phenomenon and all the stuff behind it, he was very interested, asked which Chris was the best Chris (Pine, and because reasons) and at the end he turned and gave me the biggest puppy dog eyes and asked if he could be The Best Chris.

    He now asks me nearly every day if he’s The Best Chris. His name is not Chris.

    Of course you are honey. You’re The Best Chris 🤣

    • whatWHAT? says:

      OMG, that is so cute. tell him, every AM, “you’re the best Chris”.

      • Michelle Connolly says:

        I pretty much do, but he’s usually in there first with it! Or when he does something nice like washes up the dishes before me he says it’s because he’s The Best Chris. It’s silly but it cracks me up!

  7. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Chris Evans would be my top pick for my quarantine buddy. For many reasons…

  8. BayTampaBay says:

    I always get the “Chris Evans” people mixed-up. When I hear Chris Evans, I think of the dude who was on Top Gear and married to Billie Piper. I do not think of the dude the plays (played?) Captain America. I guess I am just really getting old and just need to stick with gossiping about Royals.

  9. Emily says:

    Michelle Obama reminds me of my parents who have no idea who Chris Evans is since they haven’t watched any of the Marvel movies. I got them to fianally watch Knives Out and explained to them who Chris Evans was but to be fair, because his character is so douchey in that movie, it’s kind of hard to find him attractive. Especially if you haven’t ever seen him in any Captain America/Avengers movies.

    Recently got my mom into Parks and Rec which we are binging since Parks and Rec goes bye bye from Netflix on October 1st so she now knows who Chris Pratt is (the worst Chris but I love his character Andy Dwyer). And she confused him with Chris Evans the other day going “Isn’t that Chris Evans?” I had to sternly lecture her to never confuse Pratt and Evans.

    And I would do the same: Quarantine with Chris E, Vacation with Chris R., and Zoom with Chris H. I like this version better than FMK because I really don’t want to kill Hemsworth.

    There is another excellent Chris who is overlooked for various reasons, but he is a national treasure: Chris Meloni. I love his Twitter feed. When he and Patton Oswalt post their tweets, I can always hear their voices narrating.
    That said…
    Vacation – Chris Evans (and we’d go to his favorite place – Disney World, or we’d go to mine: Florence, Italy)
    Quarantine – Chris Meloni, because I bet he would be good company. The conversations would be really interesting, although you could flip this and have just as much fun with Evans to be honest)
    Zoom – again, this is a toughy, because Pine is an interesting soul too and would be just as good with the other two options…
    Hey! Let’s just have a Chris convention somewhere at some remote, interesting, historic hotel and hang out with everyone.

    That interview was great. Michelle said Daddy O taught the girls how to play Spades. I can just imagine her talking mucho trash during the games–”Malia, you better come high or stay at home!” LOL!

    I love you, Michelle. I hope to see both you and the hubs at the Biden/Harris victory party. Please dance joyfully as one of the worst periods of American history ends. We need healing so badly.
