James Corden decided to profess his love for Victoria Beckham in what appears to be a short remake of the 1987 film Mannequin; or, as the narrator calls it, “the reboot no one asked for”.
In the hilarious clip, The Late Late Show host falls in love with a mannequin version of Beckham, whom he sees as a real woman. The two of them develop an unlikely bond, even though people see Corden as a crazy person talking to a dummy. Still, “she taught [him] how to laugh”.
But when the time comes and dummy Beckham feels she wants to be with “others like [her]”, Corden agrees to let her go and reunites her with her fellow mannequins. On the road, the IRL former Spice Girl sings along to Spice Up Your Life, giving us a taste of that Carpool Karaoke we’re probably never gonna get.
