At last night's exhibition game between the American and Brazilian basketball teams, First Couple Barack and Michelle Obama were thrust into the long and storied tradition of forced Public Display of Affection when they appeared on the Verizon Center's Kiss Cam.

At first, the presidential pair wasn't too keen to play along, or perhaps was caught off-guard, and the crowd was audibly upset at the "airball."

But the Kiss Cam operator wasn't about to miss the opportunity of a lifetime, and made another attempt to compel the couple to lock lips.

Score! And the crowd goes wild.
