For those of us who have seen Step Up, Magic Mike or its recently released sequel, we’re all well aware Channing Tatum can dance. However, it comes as something of a surprise though to see him drop his grinding stripper moves for something a little tamer – voguing, the funky chicken and the pony.

Watch Channing Tatum In The Magic Mike XXL Trailer:

Tatum did seven well-known dance moves in 30 seconds in a video for Vanity Fair. The video was part of his interview for his August cover of the magazine. Tatum, knowing some of the moves are somewhat ridiculous, took the bizarre activity in good part and even seemed to be enjoying himself. He was especially good at voguing! 

Tatum is currently doing the rounds of publicity for Magic Mike XXL. The sequel to the 2012 hit film Magic Mike is inspired by Tatum’s own experience working as a stripper in Florida before his career launched. This film sees Mike (Tatum) and his group of male strippers, including True Blood’s Joe Manganiello and White Collar’s Matt Bomer, head out on one last road trip together. 

Following the critical success of Foxcatcher, Tatum is set to turn his attention to slightly quirkier roles than Magic Mike. His next part is in Quentin Tarantino’s Western revenge drama, The Hateful Eight. Tarantino is not the only unusual director Tatum has been confirmed to work with as he will also star in the Coen brother’s Hail Caesar!
