Channing Tatum–Model Naked, Ski Naked?

Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 10, 2009 10:08 am

Here at The Ski Channel, we’ve established our fascination with skiing and snowboarding in the buff (at least…this author has…). So when we heard that G.I. Joe’s Channing Tatum used to be a male stripper and nude model, the first thing that came to mind, obviously, was that if he’s willing to model naked, he’s probably willing to ski or snowboard naked too, right? Sure, his nude model shoots were for “artistic purposes”, but we can think of several artistic reasons for skiing without the burden of all that pesky clothing. For one thing, all the bruising and frostbite would definitely provide some rich blacks and blues on his body. Can that be considered body art? If the naked thing doesn’t work out, maybe we can get Channing to model some of those new Ski Jackets made out of hemp and bamboo. Forget those super suits he wears in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra–we’re pretty sure fighting Dr. Mindbender whilst sporting a bamboo ski jacket would make the task infinitely easier. He’d be stronger, faster, and cooler looking. And then when the bad guys are dead, he wouldn’t even have to change clothes before heading out to go skiing. Good idea?
