Warning: The below image and video features partial nudity and may be NSFW
With Magic Mike in theaters this weekend, we of course have some fun stuff planned here at Movies.com. In just a little while we'll have part one of a two-part feature by our own Katie Calautti, who spent this past weekend holed up inside a male strip club in New York City. She spoke to everyone from the dancers to the patrons to the club's owner, and you might be surprised by what she discovered. First up, though, is what inspired the film in the first place. Remember, Magic Mike is loosely based on the experiences of its star, Channing Tatum, back when he was an 18-year-old hunk looking to make some extra money through exotic dancing.
Speaking of ...
Yup, the guy sticking his dollar bill-filled butt out is indeed a very young Tatum, who danced at a club called Male Encounter in Florida back in 1999 under the name Chan Crawford. If that image doesn't do it for you, then feel free to check out the below video of Tatum in action, courtesy of US Weekly. You're welcome ladies.
Magic Mike hits theaters on Friday.
