Yes, that’s Channing Tatum dressed as a balding, middle-aged marketing executive named Scott Hasley, ready to surprise fans at a Magic Mike XXL screening.
Tatum went undercover in this dadbod uniform to promote the Magic Mike sequel and announce a contest. In the video below, the actor interviews fans at a test screening to gather market “research” for the movie—props to the guy who says he’d like to see “some full-frontal nudity for once,” by the way.
The prank is also part of a contest with charity organizers Omaze wherein the winner gets a premiere package ;) that includes a red carpet ride with Tatum and a luxury spa day.
Watch below as Tatum reveals his identity and performs for the audience with a bunch of strippers. He also throws roses into the crowd and I really hope they didn’t have thorns on them.
