You always knew in theory that Channing Tatum used to be a stripper. But for the very few of you who couldn’t really imagine it, this should put any questions you had to rest.
Tatum—or Chan Crawford, as he was known on stage—does quite a little shimmy in some of the 1990s’ baggiest chic, wiggling his bum and giving the ladies of the Male Encounter strip club audience quite an eyeful. He really owns the socks/banana hammock look, though, so he’s got that going for him.
And now you know where Tatum gets his Magic Mike source material. You’re welcome.
