Watch: Channing Tatum Performs Alternate ‘Magic Mike’ Scenes Written by Kids

While promoting “Magic Mike XXL,” Channing Tatum stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and performed scenes as kid-friendlier Magic Mike.

The actor was a part of the show’s “Kid Theater” segment, in which the scenes were written by elementary school students. “We gave them no direction, just the title,” Fallon said. “We asked them to write scenes based on what they think a movie called ‘Magic Mike’ would be about.”

One young screenwriter imagined Magic Mike, originally known as a sexy male stripper, as a hero who helps a boy fix a flat tire on his bike. After delivering his catchphrase – “I’m like regular Mike, except Magic” – Tatum saved the day with his magic bike pump.

Other scenes included Magic Mike as the king of aliens and a duet of the song, “Magic Bird Come Fly With Me.”
