Channing Tatum Strips In Disguise At Magic Mike XXL Screening
Tatum, the powerhouse star behind Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL, surprised fans at a special Magic Mike XXL event, wearing prosthetics and heavy makeup to interview audience members about Magic Mike in disguise. Wearing a scraggly fake beard, large glasses and balding wig, Tatum pretended to be a marketing employee for the film, asking fans, “Which would you say was the best actor out of all of them?” and “What part of the movie would you want to see in 3D?” (A favorite response to that question: “uh, the stripping part?”)
As fans sat down in their seats, prepared for the ‘3D’ screening to begin, male dancers came out and surprised the audience with a strip show. Tatum later joined in, revealing his identity and shocking the fans. Tatum later participated in a meet and greet.
The entire event was filmed to help launch Tatum’s omaze raffle. Winners will get to “ride to the premiere of Magic Mike XXL with Channing in his motorcade and walk the red carpet,” get a spa day and a gown/tux fitting and attend the after-party with flight and hotel included.
Omaze, the funding website, works a bit like Kickstarter, but instead of raising money to fund a project, users raise money for charity. This particular raffle will benefit the Runa Foundation, a charity that works to establish medical clinics in the Amazon. The minimum donation of $10 buys a fan 100 entries in the raffle, but other donation amounts also come with rewards. For example, a $500 donation will yield 5000 entries into the raffle and a guaranteed reward of “Briefs & Bow Tie Combo” signed by Tatum. Mega fans with cash to spare can donate an impressive $25,000 for 250000 entries into the raffle and either meet Tatum at a NYC talk show appearance, meet Tatum on the set of an upcoming film, or meet Tatum at his Production Company Office on the Sony Lot.
Magic Mike XXL hits theaters on July 1.
