Here’s 18-Year-Old Channing Tatum Working As A Stripper

Several years ago (practically centuries in the internet world), Us Weekly managed to find this glorious footage of 18-year-old Channing Tatum working as a stripper in Florida. Now, they’ve unearthed it once again in honor of the upcoming “Magic Mike” sequel. Channing performed under the name Chan Crawford back in 1999 when boy band style was still ultra trendy (of course, Backstreet Boys fashion is always alive in my heart). Tatum has said that the people he met on the job gave him the ability to play a much wider range of characters. It also makes him even hotter, so there’s that. [NYMag.com]
