Victoria Beckham’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ features a 1980s twist

Victoria Beckham took on the role of a talking mannequin in a hilarious spin on Carpool Karaokewith James Corden. The former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer teamed up with the chat show host to make their own trailer for a reboot of the 1980s movie Mannequin. Victoria takes on Kim Cattrall's part, playing a mannequin who comes to life, with James as Andrew McCarthy's character, the only person who can see who she really is.

At the start of the trailer, the narrator explains: "She was a mannequin who turned his world upside down." The duo can be seen laughing and dancing together backstage as the voiceover continues: "The world couldn't understand their love. Like, really couldn't understand their love. No seriously, they didn't get it…" Victoria can then be seen saying she is "lonely" and wants to be with other like her. James promises to get her home and they run off together through the car park, with a guard yelling at James for being a "sick puppy" running with a mannequin under his arm.

Once inside the car together, James asks Victoria if they should listen to some music, and the pair sing and dance along together to the 1997 Spice Girls hit track, Spice Up Your Life. A man pulling up in a car alongside looks bemused to see James singing with a mannequin in the passenger seat, before James can be seen once again running with the plastic model under his arm inside a store, where Victoria is reunited in the front window with other mannequins. The voice over at the end of the trailer remarks: "It's Victoria Beckham and James Corden in the reboot that no one asked for."

The clip comes one day after Victoria teased about her appearance on the show on social media. She is the latest in a stream of stars who have joined James in his famous carpool car. Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, Sir Elton John, Mariah Carey, Madonna and Michelle Obama have all taken part. Most recently Take That featured in a Comic Relief special.
