Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Channing Tatum, Patrick Swayze: Whose SNL Striptease Reigns Supreme?

You know how we know the folks at Saturday Night Live are proud of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s striptease opening monologue? It’s already behind the Hulu pay wall, and the only way to re-watch it for free now is via bootleg videos. Or you can settle for our lovely GIFs above (courtesy of our departing GIF Mistress Lauren Olson). We were pretty impressed ourselves with JGL’s skills — that push-up move was just, wow. Not that we expect him to be anything less than spectacular at everything he does these days. But of course, it immediately reminded us of two other great exotic dance skits on the show: Channing Tatum showing off the talent that made him Magic Mike (the “super-hero movie” that itself inspired JGL’s dance), and, of course, that legendary Chippendale’s dance-off between Patrick Swayze and Chris Farley. We hope those two are doing their best body rolls up in heaven right now. Take a peek at those skits and then tell us which of the three gets you most hot-and-bothered/clutching your sides with laughter.
