The new Magic Mike Live show has opened in Las Vegas, and that means Channing Tatum is working harder than a stripper on the pole who is putting himself through grad school. In a game played with E! News, posted to their Instagram page, Channing was shown pics of male celebrities and given the opportunity to bequeath them with stripper names. Some of the names imply a knowledge of the guys in question that you wouldn’t think Channing should have, but that’s exactly what makes them so good.
Zac Efron is titled “Rusty Sparkplug,” which does not sound like a compliment. George Clooney is “Debonair Dogleg,” an extremely naughty moniker, honestly. Jonah Hill becomes “The Unicorn,” while Harry Styles is called “The English Muffin,” which is what he should be called all the time. Samuel L. Jackson is of course “Mother F***ing Samuel L. Jackson,” and Justin Bieber is very diplomatically titled “The Tattooed Kid,” though Channing looks like he was thinking something else. Leonardo DiCaprio is called “The Deep Experience” (again, very suggestive), Kanye West is very respectfully referred to as “Mr. West,” and finally Chris Pratt is simply “Pratt.”
This is actually a pretty fun party game. Try playing it on Thanksgiving with your extended family and see how that goes.
