Victoria Beckham and James Corden put a hilarious new spin on “Carpool Karaoke” on Thursday’s Late Late Show!
“Victoria and I have the oddest thing in common,” Corden announced. “We are both huge fans of the ‘80s movie Mannequin.”
Such big fans are the British stars of the 1987 Andrew McCarthy-Kim Cattrall film, in fact, that Corden joked they had been tapped to star in a reboot, debuting the new “trailer” for his audience.
Beckham, of course, stepped in for the Cattrall role, playing a mannequin that comes to life, but only Corden’s character can see her. Everyone else just thinks the late night host has lost his mind and is romancing a dress form with a wig.
“The world couldn’t understand their love,” the trailer’s narrator announces, as Corden dances with his new girlfriend in the Late Late Show dressing room. “Like, really couldn’t understand their love... No seriously, they didn’t get it.”
And the concerned looks from the Late Late Show crew aren’t anything compared to the reactions the pair get when they take their romance on the road, lip syncing to “Spice Up Your Life” as motorists gawk at the dummy riding shotgun.
It was a hilarious romp, but Spice Girls fans are likely still keeping their fingers crossed for a more comprehensive car ride, perhaps with even more spice!
