It's hard to remember our dreams lives before Channing Tatum. But, there was a time when he was just another beautiful man, trying to make a career for himself. Before Magic Mike, he did a lot of modeling for retailers like Abercrombie & Fitch. And, Out just reminded us that he's also done some magazine work in what is possibly the most epic #TBT of all time.

Tatum worked the cover and a saucy spread for the glossy in February 2002, when he was a clean-chested 22-year-old.

Photographed by Todd Oldham, the story was a feature on, yes, Valentine's Day. Those jean cutoffs! That perfect body! We're starting to wonder if this aughties feature isn't the entire reason Channing was cast in Magic Mike in the first place. Well, that and his epic dance moves. (Perez Hilton)
