There must be something in the water in Hollywood.
On Tuesday, two of Tinseltown's hottest leading men, Brad Pitt and Channing Tatum, got extremely weird on the late-night airwaves.
Tatum was the first to unfurl his freak flag on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," where he appeared in double-entendre-laden video called "(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum." It featured one of the catchiest R 'n' B hooks since "Motherlover" and a bevy of stars including Jamie Foxx, Olivia Munn, Gabourey Sidibe and Miley Cyrus -- but alas, no Justin Timberlake or Andy Samberg.
Meanwhile on "Late Night," Pitt took a more minimalist approach, starring in an absurdist bit in which he and host Jimmy Fallon shared a yodel conversation across the rooftops of New York City.(Pitt: "Hey, crazy idea... you wanna try a double yodel?" Fallon: "A double yodel? But that's never been done before.")
All the goofing-around proves at least one thing: Promoting a movie is more demanding than ever.
