Passenger watching Magic Mike on plane left in ‘disbelief’ after being handed note

The note left her too stunned to speak

When you're on a long haul flight, a film can be your saving grace.

Unfortunately, you can sometimes be hindered by the choice on offer from your airline.

But for one woman who was jetting from Bali to Australia was in for a treat as she settled into her seat.

Jess' movie of choice was none other than Magic Mike's Last Dance, starring Channing Tatum.

Anyone familiar with the saucy flick will be aware that there is a lot of nudity.

That might seem like an obvious statement, given that the plot follows around male strippers.

But Jess' viewing experience would not go unnoticed however.

After checking around to see that no kids were in the nearby area, she popped the film back and sat back to enjoy Tatum in action.

Before long, the film grabbed the attention of the passenger sat next to Jess.

One might think this was inevitable - a bunch of strippers doing their thing on a nearby screen is going to draw some attention.

But perhaps this wasn't the kind of attention Jess would have appreciated.

The woman next to her tapped on Jess' shoulder and passed her a note.

Jess told Kidspot: "I accepted it without even glancing down to see what was written.

"When I’d taken a quick look, the shock hit me and I went silent."

A woman was handed this note whilst watching Magic Mike on a flight.

Heading to the bathroom, Jess read the message in full.

It read: "If you want to accept His offer you may pray this prayer…. Dear Lord Jesus, I realize I am a sinner and I believe you bled and died to pay the price for my sin. I believe that you rose from the dead and you live forevermore. Please forgive me and come into my heart and save my soul. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

"Dear Friend, if you would like:

  • To study the Bible
  • Someone to pray for you
  • Help with a personal problem
  • Someone to visit you
  • To join a youth group
  • A Bible

"Please do not hesitate to let me know."

So, there you have it.

Watching Magic Mike brought on an attempted conversion.

The Lord does work in mysterious ways, I suppose.

Jess wasn't deterred from watching Tatum and Salma Hayek get frisky however.

She said: "It definitely did not get through to me,” she shared.

"I’m not hugely religious. I grew up Catholic but as an adult, my views have changed."

Despite this, the God fearing passenger attempted to initiate a conversation about 'faith and mortality' a few hours later.

Jess said: "I sat there in disbelief. We had a way to go and it was already very late in the day. It was the last thing I wanted to be hearing.

"I think in any other circumstance, I might have been up for the debate, but all I wanted to do was relax and get home."

Admittedly, if there's one place I don't want to be thinking about death, it's on an airplane.

Eventually, Jess just popped her earphones back on: "It’s part of the in-flight entertainment for a reason!

"In fact, should they make a fourth ‘Magic Mike,’ I’ll be sure to watch it on my next trip."
