Magic Mike – the movie about the wild world of male strippers – has had a PG makeover. US chat show host Jimmy Fallon asked elementary school kids (that's primary school children to UK readers) to come up with their own version of the story, giving the innocent youngsters just the title of the film as inspiration.


So out went the shirt-ripping and crotch-thrusting and in came tales of a deflated bicycle wheel, an alien fighter and an angry magic bird who loves to sing. 

Fallon even roped in the film's star Channing Tatum to perform the far-from-x-rated versions on his Tonight Show. The results are, as you can probably imagine, amazing...


Magic Mike XXL is in cinemas 3rd July
