Channing Tatum knows how to shake up a work day! The actor brought along a gaggle of male exotic dancers as he surprised a group of office workers in Las Vegas this week. Disguised as "the King of rock 'n' roll," Elvis Presley, the 36-year-old pranked a group of employees expecting a regular day at the office on the 17th floor.

Channing's ensemble came complete with a white jumpsuit, red scarf (which the late singer regularly ripped off and threw to fans) and a coiffed, dark-brown wig. His hilarious undertaking, which served the purpose of raising awareness and funds for World AIDS Day on Dec. 1, was filmed for fans' viewing pleasure.

"Hey, what's up, y'all? Channing here, and I'm here to support (RED)," Tatum said while introducing the side-splitting video. "I've teamed up with Omaze again to offer you a chance to join me in Las Vegas for the opening night of Magic Mike Live, a night that you will never forget."

"To give you a preview, I'm here to surprise a few overworked folks with a quick trip to Vegas," he explained. "We've transformed the top floor of this ordinary office building into a bustling casino, complete with all things Vegas. My friends are here, the cameras are hidden and in place, and I'm just about ready to surprise our unsuspecting targets. All they have to do is follow the King."

According to Omaze's contest website, every entry of $10 or more will be donated to (RED)'s fight for an AIDS Free Generation. The charity, which was created by Bono, is also offering donors the chance to win a slew of other A-list opportunities. Among them are tea with Bono and Julia Roberts, a private U2 concert, a night out with Neil Patrick Harris and a studio hangout with One Direction's Liam Payne.

Channing is raising funds for the (RED) campaign

"It is a battle now for funding. It's just a street battle, pitch battle, and we have to keep this stuff in the news or literally those people don't get the drugs. It's that simple," Bono said in an interview with The Associated Press last week.

"We have to just remind people that America has led the war on this tiny little virus and is winning the war, but it is unthinkable, but it is possible, that if we stall on funding then we start to undo all this good work."
