O’Brien rounded up a group of his female staffers who were excited to see the male stripper pic. Their enthusiasm dumbfounded the latenight host, who claimed to be unaware of the movie’s theme.
“I don’t know much about the film. Just judging by the title, I assume it’s a very heavy magician,” O’Brien says in the video. “I haven’t seen you ladies react this way to a movie franchise before. You didn’t do this for ‘Ninja Turtles.’ What’s going on?”
In the 10-minute segment, O’Brien sips on an elaborate pink cocktail that he dubs “The C. Tatum” after the movie’s star and even dances for the ladies, at one point ripping off his track pants to reveal that he’s wearing skinny jeans beneath them.
The comedian offers his take on the movie’s stars. “He looks like a lumberjack that’s off his meds,” O’Brien quips about one of the strippers.
“Magic Mike XXL” star Joe Manganiello even makes an appearance at the end of the video.
