Channing Tatum

In New Stripper Footage

Hold on tight ... new half-naked footage of Channing Tatum has surfaced from his man-stripper past -- but it's not the panty-melting experience you were hoping for ... guy completely BOTCHED the easiest choreography ever ... the YMCA dance.

The video was shot during the actor's brief stint as a male stripper in the late 90's -- and clearly ...  he still had a lot to learn in the ways of Magic Mike.

Check out the footage -- Tatum also does some weird tribal thing at the end ... if you're into that sort of thing ... this is a judgment-free zone.

These boys are not the sharpest tools in the shed. This is like a "How to pretend you're making it when you are really stupid" movie. Matthew M. is getting a little long in the tooth to be doing this. Channing T. comes across lately as being one step above a turnip. Embarrassing...

They must have played YMCA, Whip It, and Another One Bites the Dust at the local skating rink a thousand times when we were kids.
And Eye of the Tiger. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeye. Of the tiger.

After seeing Channing dance in Step It Up 1-that guy has some serious moves. Watch that movie and you'll change your mind about his "skills". This strip dance was a LONG time ago-almost 15 years ago. Don't care if he's gay or not, none of my business...but my girlfriends and I are not going to miss seeing his body near naked and dancing -- hades, no!!

The male encounter group was one of the worst male reviews in Florida back in the 90's. They danced at this club for several years because they worked for tips and the club didn't have to pay them. They also worked at several Gay bars in the area. As you can see, he learned absolutely nothing from his fellow dancers. In the movie he learned how to really dance from Professional Choreographers. I commend him on striving to make it to the big screen. These other clowns never went anywhere!

Does it get any gayer...and higher...and talentless than this?

Channing Tatum should have made an honest movie now about the experience being a gay stripper (oh, "for women"). Instead, it seems that he's chosen to re-write the reality (as we see here) into something attempting to bilk chubby, lonely ladies out of their movie-going dollars today.

Anyone who wants to see the REAL experience and sorts of guys and performances gay, drunk/high strippers are all about just need to Google or watch these real clips.

But then, the entire cast of guys of "Magic Mike" all have gay pasts and like to use their physiques to dupe the ladies out of their dollars. Its a gross cast of so-called actors. And Channing Tatum is the lowest of them all enjoying dragging the other actors down to his level.
