The Spice Girls perform on Wellington Waterfront

We know you're just so eager to watch this magnificent piece of work, so we'll be quick. We were booked to be the Spice Girls for a private event, so we naturally decided we may as well shoot a music video for one of our favourite songs, considering we were all dressed up.
