We find this video hard to believe. A wig, some make up, and a fake beard? That’s all it takes to disguise Channing Tatum? We’re dubious. We’ve seen the original Magic Mike, we know what that man’s body looks like. You can’t hide that under some grey wig. At yet, some women were apparently fooled when Tatum went undercover at a special screening of the upcoming Magic Mike XXL dressed as a middle-aged marketing executive. The suspiciously square-jawed marketer asks the women basic questions about the movie, and then… well, then the strippers appear.
This promotional video for Magic Mike XXL is also tied to an Omaze fundraiser for the Runa foundation, a deforestation activity organization. Donate for a chance to walk the red carpet with Tatum at the Magic Mike XXL premiere (presumably without the wig.)
