‘Magic Mike XXL’ Star Channing Tatum Pranks Fans For Charity

Sequel to “Magic Mike”, “Magic Mike XXL” promises to be even bigger and better than the previous one. Almost a month away from its target release date, the stripper clad movie will continue to see the exploits of Magic Mike and his associates as they get along with what they do the best. In order to promote the movie Channing Tatum did something different from the usual.

According to Yahoo! Celebrity, Channing Tatum shared some light moments from this experience with them and did something that he is not really known for and that is being unattractive. The 35-year-old actor put on some make-up dressing himself as Scott, the marketing guy and made his presence felt at the special screening to ask some questions to people who were there for this supposed “screening.”

The reason why the actor chose to go de-glam was all for good reasons. He supports a charity concerning the environment and was spear heading this campaign in association with Omaze. He thinks this was the perfect way to kick-start the campaign and it sure was.

The questions range from what the audiences would like to see in the movie to what is there favorite move in the film and who their favorite character in the movie is. The actor received a response in the form of Matthew McConaughey’s name, which was very amusing to the actor himself. On being asked how did he feel when he heard McConaughey’s name, he mentioned he was expecting it and it was really hilarious. The screening began and his alter ego Scott asked everyone to put on their 3D glasses since the show was to be in 3D for “better” viewing experience and all of a sudden, male strippers jumped out of their seats and so the show began.

But what can clearly be defined as the most wonderful moment of the event was when the actor himself took to the stage while dressed as Scott. The audiences burst out in laughter and went officially crazy when the actor took off his make up and revealed himself. According to the campaign, the lucky winner will be able to enjoy a privileged day apart from being able to attend the screening of the movie with the actor himself and donations made to this campaign will go to the Runa Foundation that works towards the betterment of tropical forests. Now that’s what we call stripping for all the right reasons.
