's male stripper
film, Magic Mike
, may not open until Friday – but some lucky fans in New York City got an early preview of the actor's moves Wednesday.
During an appearance on NBC's Today show
to promote the movie, Tatum, 32, participated in a flash mob with a slew of backup dancers in Rockefeller Plaza, doing a choreographed routine to a slowed-down version of "It's Raining Men." (Watch video below!)
The impromptu performance seemingly forced hosts Ann Curry and Al Roker to quickly get out of the way of the troupe.
But fans who are waiting to see some skin
will have to wait until the movie hits theaters. Despite receiving a dollar bill from one member of the audience, Tatum kept his clothes on throughout Wednesday's performance.
