HAPPY 27th Birthday, Channing!!!...The Birthday Gift CTU Style

Dear Channing,

Happy 27th birthday from ChanningTatumUnwrapped.com and all of my readers!!!! We have all been working for months on this unique birthday gift for you and we truly hope that you like it.

If you look from afar (step back about 10 feet), this picture mosaic is an unreleased photo of you suiting up in your riot gear on the set of Battle in Seattle. If you look at the picture up close, you will see that it is actually made of tons of photos of your faithful fans, of graphics they created from your photos, and in one case, of a painting a fan created of your Step Up poster with Jenna.

Below you will see the mosaic and the original photo that the mosaic was created from. If you click on the mosaic, you will be able to see in detail all of the fan photos that helped to create the picture.

After writing over 250 articles on my blog about you, you would think it would be really easy to write this letter. Since I have never written to you directly, I find myself at a rare loss for words, so I am just going to tell you a little bit about your amazing fans.

There are too many to list in this one letter, but through my blog I have been extremely lucky to meet many incredible people literally from all around the world who truly appreciate you as a person and as an actor. I affectionately call all of us Fabulous Channing Tatum Fans and we are all certified Channaholics.

First of all, there's Miguel who you inspired to lose over 90 lbs. and who has created ton's of fan graphics and videos for the fan community, in addition to having a great MySpace fan profile for you. You can learn more about him in our Fab Fan Spotlight on this blog.

Then there's Brandi who has one of the best MySpace fan profiles that she religiously changes daily and constantly tries to keep the fans updated on news about you.

There are fans like Natalie from Russia, Christopher from Canada, Pasi from Finland, Kym from Australia, Fern from Thailand, Amy from Massachusetts (who has been known to check the blog like every 15 minutes just in case I make an update), Rachael from Indiana, Petra from Massachusetts, Tierra and her adorable little sister Tamirra (who are way too young to know what a sexy beast is, but that is what they think you are), and the countless other fans that read Channing Tatum Unwrapped every day hungry to get any new information, photos, or videos about you.

Then there is me...LaQuishe (aka Channing Tatum Unwrapped), a dedicated mom and wife who started my blog as a hobby, because I am a huge fan. I never realized the friendships that I would make with my readers, and I can personally tell you that you have an amazing and completely supportive fan base that would like to thank you for everything that you have given to us.

Please accept this gift as a small token of our appreciation and know that we will all continue to support you as your career rapidly grows and your star rises for many years to come.


Your Dedicated Fans – LaQuishe and All of My Readers

P.S. Please tell Jenna we said hello. We absolutely LOVE her too!!

To CTU Readers: Feel free to leave your birthday messages to Channing in the comments and thanks again for all of your help with this project! Good news...anyone who leaves Channing a message today on this blog entry will be entered into a drawing for a free limited edition, high resolution poster of his birthday gift. Good luck!

I had a reader tell me that they have experienced problems trying to leave a comment on the blog. If you have trouble leaving comments, just send me an email to birthday@channingtatumunwrapped.com
with your comment and to try to get the free poster. Thanks!

FYI...Channing's 3 feet tall 2 feet wide framed poster has been shipped to his manager's office, so he will get his birthday gift very soon. Also, you can find both of the pictures above and all of the photos used to make it in a higher resolution in the Channing Tatum Unwrapped Photo Gallery. If you want to know more about Channing's upcoming movie Battle in Seattle, you can go to the official site and MovieSet.com to get more information.

Thank you again, because I could not have done any of this without all of your submissions and help!

Love Channing Tatum?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHANNING!! I'm more excited for your birthday than I ever was for mine!...LOL!....CTU (a.k.a LaQuishe) has done so much to keep us fans updated on you down to the littlest detail and for some stars, that could be a bad thing, but for you, just made me like you even more! I just want to thank you for doin' what you do best. You keep doin' that and I'll keep doin' what I do best, which is being a loyal fan of yours.
P.S. (If you have the day off for your birthday, Get Drunk, Party Hard, and Stay Up Late 'cause you only turn 27 once..LOL!) ~Miguel R.

Hey Chan,

I wanted to scream it from the roof that it’s you’re birthday, but I might get problems with my neighbours… so…. I’m doing it just like this: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also wanted to tell you that you’re a great actor and of course a VERY GOOD dancer.
I hope you will visit Holland once and then you can bring Jenna with you, cause she’s the best too.

So… keep the party alive, have a good time and don’t get too wasted cause you’re gonna feel it in the morning.

You're the best,

Much love from Holland

Petra, I have to apologize to you and NATALIE from Russia. I can't correct the letter that went to Channing, but I will correct the blog entry right now. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.


Lol, no problem. I'm from Massachusetts, btw. :P Just like Amy.

Amy said...
