Channing Tatum isn’t just your girl’s favorite actor. Turns out, he’s a pretty cool guy, too.

If you’ve never heard of Channing Tatum, we forgive you. After all, the actor is mostly famous for his roles in a couple of movies, you’ve, uh, probably not seen. Namely Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. But hey, he also starred in stuff like Coach Carter and the most recent G.I. Joe flicks, so there’s that. And he’s got a new movie out called Logan Lucky, a comedy that admittedly looks pretty funny.

To promote his latest movie, Tatum recently embarked on a cross country tour. His first stop was Lexington, Kentucky, where the actor’s presence caused quite a stir. The admitted Harley-Davidson enthusiast rolled into Windy Corner Market for some breakfast on a brand new hog. Which in and of itself would have been a big deal. But Tatum had an even bigger surprise in store.

Turns out, Tatum had a brand new Harley to give away as part of a promotion for his new film. And the recipient was a cook at the restaurant, Victoria Pitman, who just happened to be celebrating her 20th birthday. Needless to say, the whole thing took her by surprise. “I thought I was going to come to work and like go home and that’s what I thought today was going to go like, but then Channing Tatum gave me a motorcycle,” Pitman told WKYT.

So even if we’re not familiar with Channing Tatum’s body of work (get it?), we at least appreciate the fact that he’s a Harley guy. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to knock out a few extra pushups.
