Channing Tatum and Rebel Wilson in new 2013 MTV Movie Awards promo

MTV released this new promo for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards featuring host Rebel Wilson and nominee Channing Tatum. The funny clip puts Rebel Wilson and Channing Tatum into the middle of a scene that appears to parody action films of the sort that Channing Tatum will be starring in himself in a few weeks when G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits theaters on March 28. As Rebel wields a rocket, her partner Channing pilots a dangerous drive in a race against the enemy as they gear up for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.


However, Rebel Wilson doesn’t exactly put herself in the best position to fire the rocket, opting instead to not-so-subtly cop a feel (and then some) on Channing Tatum, eventually trying to talk the studly actor into removing his shirt. Not coincidentally, Channing Tatum is one of the nominees in the 2013 MTV Movie Awards debut category of Best Shirtless Performance for his role in Magic Mike. Channing Tatum is also nominated for Best Male Performance in Magic Mike, and as part of a Magic Mike ensemble for Best Musical Moment, another new category being introduced at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

The 2013 MTV Movie Awards air live April 14 at 9pm ET on MTV.
