In this Late Late Show skit, James Corden falls in love with a plastic Victoria Beckham in a spoof of the 1987 romantic comedy Mannequin.
As a voice-over says “the reboot no one asked for,” this Mannequin takes place on Corden’s show set.
“He was a talk show host,” we hear. “And she was a mannequin who turned his world upside down. To everyone else, he’s a disaster. The world couldn’t understand their love.”
Early on, Corden takes offense when a co-worker calls Beckham “a dummy.” He dramatically fires back, “Do not speak to her that way! She taught me how to laugh.”
Ultimately, Beckham decides she wants to live with other mannequins, so Corden helps her escape.
In their car trip get-away, they perform their own “Carpool Karaoke” to the Spice Girls’ 1997 hit “Spice Up Your Life” – except,as it turns out, Corden’s the only one singing.
The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights at 12:35 AM ET/11:35 PM CT on CBS.
