Russell Wilson was super motivated and inspired after his workout on Friday. All of that energy resulted in an encouraging Instagram video with the message of “Why not you?”
The Seahawks quarterback says a photo of Ciara and him in the Oval Office is what got him really thinking. Oh, and the video ends with a pretty solid impersonation of former President Barack Obama.

Wilson excitedly says:
“Yep, Oval Office. Is that President Obama? Is that First Lady Michelle? No! That’s me and Ciara! How in the world did that happen? I was sitting here thinking about this, thinking about this moment, thinking about the president of the United States, President Obama. I was thinking about all the things he’s done, being the first African American president ever. The First Lady Michelle, all the amazing things she’s done in her community. I was thinking about Ciara and all the amazing things she’s done in her amazing career and what she’s got going on now, all the positive things. Even me, people tell me I was too small, I was a small town kid and no way I could make it.
“What it made me think about was motivation. I just got done working out and it made me think about young kids all over the world, boys and girls. Go after the dreams that you want, the things that you love, the things that you yearn to make happen, go make it happen. And, you never know, you could be the next president of the United States. Who knows? But, by the way, love you guys. Why not you? And (*Obama voice*) God bless America.”
