The Spice Girls get “Scary”, confronting against sexist men during a 1997 Polaroid commercial shoot.
The candid behind-the-scenes shot shows Mel B (Scary Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) approaching a man on the production team and scolding him for suggesting they show more skin:”Why did you ask to have cleavage showing and a midriff showing?” Mel B asks.
Shrugging off the comment, the man replies: “It’s every man’s fantasy.” Mel B snaps back: “Well you can f**k off.” The dude clearly wasn’t interested in apologizing, instead quipping: “That’s showbiz,” to which Halliwell chimes in: “You’re a chauvinistic pig.”
Mel B drops some truth at the end of the clip, pointing to the guy and proclaiming: “And we especially thank you. Cause he’s the one who said, ‘Can you show a bit of cleavage and midriff’ and we said, ‘NO, Girl Power!'”
