Channing Tatum

Screws Up YMCA Dance

In New Stripper Footage

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Why anyone would glorify that is beyond me. I hope no one is clearing shelf space for a golden globe. Yuck.

Who cares? I'd still rather watch HIM **** up the YMCA than Harvey dance any day. Now, if we're talking Peter O'Riordian, that's a horse of a different color....

I bet Harvey wet his pants watching this... but seriously, this is from the 90's... it's old news. He's been very open about his past, so this isn't shocking. For all those who are saying he's a closet gay man... guys... he got the moves for YMCA wrong! Everyone knows that the in order to be gay you have to know this song and the moves by heart!!! (That's just a joke guys... don't get your G-strings in a twist)

Just Reading    

This clip is funny when you consider that the movie "Magic Mike" was supposed to be based on the actor's experiences and skills as a male stripper, his detractors (the guys he danced with) simply wanted to "prove" he was just a side line extra to their "real" featured performers and Tatum is just "spinning" his past into more than what it truly was. So...is the movie any good?

Ridiculous ass movie and I bet if it was a movie called Misty Michelle, there would be such hell against the producers.

Can you imagine a movie about females stripping. Feminists would go to town, but since it's some males, it's nothing.

This society is one sided as ****.

"Panty-melting"? Seriously? Somebody typed that before his usual lunch break wank in the infamous TMZ Bathroom of Death, right?
