That's not really what happened. Though Beckham and Corden did buckle up and work in a short singalong, her appearance on last night's show was actually a role in a spoof of the '80s Andrew McCarthy/Kim Cattrall comedy Mannequin.
A fake trailer saw Corden falling in love with a store mannequin, played, of course, by David Beckham's missus. The couple fetch strange looks as they bond, and Beckham expresses her desire to be with other people like herself. Corden reacts by stealing her away, driving to a local Target, and plopping her in the store window display, where she bonds with her fellow mannequins. Anyone else think for a second there that the other mannequins might turn out to be Scary, Baby, Sporty, and Ginger?
But here's the best bit: En route to Target, Corden and the mother of four belt out the lyrics to the 1997 Spice Girls hit, "Spice Up Your Life." Basically, it amounts to a lot of hand waving and Posh softly cooing "Arriba." Hey, we'll take it.
