Channing Tatum has some notable dance moves, but there's one he does with his pit bull, Lulu that might top them all.

"I can do the Dirty Dancing lift with my dog," was the first prompt Ellen DeGeneres gave Tatum in a "I Do/I Don't" game on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Thursday. Tatum replied, "I do."

Thankfully, the actor brought a clip of Lulu performing the lift with him. Watch to see the dancing duo in action, and wait for the loving ending – or as Tatum describes it, the "straight-up makeout session."
