Not that this comes as a surprise to anyone, but Channing Tatum was once a stripper, and yes his new film, Magic Mike is based on his own life.
Now some videos have started popping up on the web from Tatum’s stripping days.
In the late 90′s, Tatum dropped out of college and worked as an exotic dancer in male revues in Florida, performing under the name Chan Crawford.
From there, he went on to become a music video dancer, and ultimately, a leading man in Hollywood. And he clearly isn’t afraid of his stripper past, either.
Check out the video below to see Tatum performing the YMCA dance in some sort of pacific islander costume.
