Channing Tatum Makes Dream Come True For Sick Girl


Proof, as if you needed it, that Channing Tatum is also one of the nicest guys alive;  After word got out via Facebook that 18-year-old Alisa Finley wanted nothing more in life than to kiss her fave movie star, he blew her a kiss via video message, combined with footage of himself and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum dedicating a version of Pharrell’s “Happy” to her.

Alisa is no ordinary fan however. The teen is battling stage-four brain cancer, and “kiss Channing Tatum” is No. 1 on a 48-item bucket list that her loved ones posted to the Facebook page that they created in her honour, called “Alisa’s Butterflies.”


In the video, titled “A Kiss For Alisa”, Channing chats to her and dedicates the song to her to hopefully cheer her up.

“Hey, Alisa, what’s goin’ on, it’s Chan…hi! Just wanted to send you a little vid and say what’s up and hope you’re doing good today and…oh, we were at the Oscars the other night and Pharrell came on and we can’t ever be, you know, not dancing and happy when that song comes on…So we made a little ditty, a little song for you…Just know that you’re loved and that we’re givin’ you a big ole kiss from over here.”


Watch the whole thing to see how Tatum changed Pharrell’s lyrics to suit Alisa. (It’s really, really adorable.)  And now on Alisa’s bucket list, which also includes goals such as “kiss under the Eiffel Tower” and “no [Facebook] for 2 weeks,” there’s a note next to No. 1 that reads “almost done.”
