The Spice Girls showed the true meaning of girl power in an unearthed video from the 90’s.
While on set of a Polaroid commercial, Mel B., Victoria Beckham, and Geri Halliwell confront an advertisement exec who wanted to exploit the girls bodies by showing more cleavage and midriffs. Little did he know, he was about to fully regret that decision.
“Who was it? Was it you? Why did you ask that, to have our cleavage showing and our midriff showing?” Mel B, dressed in a schoolgirl uniform asks the male exec.
“It’s every man’s fantasy,” he nonchalantly replies. “That’s showbiz.”
“Well, you can f**k off,” Mel B shouts back, before Geri Halliwell jumps in to put him in his place, calling him “a chauvinistic pig.”
It doesn’t stop there. Victoria steals his glass and begins to mock him, “It’s not sunny,” she teases. “Stop trying to look cool.”
“You should know better, really, at your age,” Halliwell continues. “You’re in the advertising industry. What sort of example is that?”
“We especially thank you, because he’s the one who said, ’Can you show a bit of cleavage and midriff?'” Mel B says to the man as they leave the set. “And we said, ’No. Girl power!'”
Don’t mess with the Spice Girls! Great job, ladies. Watch the full incident go down below.
