James Corden And Victoria Beckham Star In The Reboot No One Asked For
“Carpool Karaoke” meets ‘Mannequin’
When Victoria Beckham teased her upcoming appearance on James Corden’s "Carpool Karaoke," the internet was abuzz… with confusion. Is she actually going to sing? Have we ever even heard her sing solo? Are we going to get a Spice Girls reunion? This would be the perfect time for a Spice Girls reunion. Instead, we got something none of us were anticipating: a spoof of the 1987 Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattrall film, Mannequin.
Yup, that confusion we started off with has lingered. In the bit, Beckham plays a mannequin who only Corden can see come to life. The two fall in love and, after Corden whisks her away in his car, the singing starts. The two duet to “Spice Up Your Life,” which isn’t exactly the reunion we were hoping for, but it’ll have to do. Afterward, they escape to Target where a weird #SponCon but not labeled #SponCon scene happens, as Corden and Beckham dance in the windows with other mannequins/real-life women who happen to be wearing the designer’s new Target collab collection.
Honestly, though, that final scene could’ve and should’ve featured the rest of the Spice Girls. Missed opportunity for all involved. Anyway, watch the full clip above.
