The other night, while enjoying a movie at what Canadians refer to as ‘Cheap Fucker Tuesday,’ the trailer for Magic Mike XXL played.
While watching, I leaned over to YumYummy and asked, “What do you think they would title a movie like this featuring us?”
I would have waited for a response but, like ‘magic,’ the perfect title came to mind, “Abra Caflabra!”
After the movie we immediately began working on a trailer script, testimonial, rating and option for funding:
From the producers of Magic Mike XXL comes Abra Caflabra XXL – the story of a middle-aged male stripper who teaches others experiencing midriff crisis how to party, pick up a pant size and make BIG money.

In order to be sure it receives the proper attention on social media, we added all of the right (and wrong) hashtags:
#MMXXL #BackfatToTheGrind #AllDayAllNightAllYouCanEatBuffet #ChanningTatum #thatsnotarabbit
As often happens once good ideas hit Hollywood, we changed the plot a bit. Instead of featuring us in the film (the universe isn’t ready and, to be honest, we’re still working on our midriffs), we opted to keep the focus on men.
