I waited patiently for the Magic Mike XXL trailer to drop this morning. I knew it was going to come out before noon so we would all have ample time to rave about it at lunch. I don't even know if I can continue to work now because of all the lusty feels…
In the clip, we catch up with Channing Tatum's character, Magic Mike, in a dim warehouse where he's making sparky things (technical term) happen with his sexy biceps when we suddenly hear a slow, low-bass version of Ginuwine's "Pony" begin to play.
All bets are off from here. 😍
Magic just has to DANCE. What looks like a sensual body rub after a long day of shed-work quickly evolves into an incredibly graceful solo routine. Who knew Tatum was so bendy?
I have never wanted to be a dusty old wrench in a tool shed so badly.
The trailer continues with very sexy, very short vignettes of the boys getting back together to dance. Where is this movie set again? How come I don't know dudes like this?
I need to go talk to a chocolate bar about all this.
The trailer ends with a cute introduction from Magic, and the gif that will forever be used for reactions to haters:
