Remembering When We Collectively Lost Our Shit At The Spice Girls During The London 2012 Closing Ceremony
Has it really been three years since this happened?
The London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony is exactly 3 years old today. It was pretty bloody weird.
We were treated to an exceptionally rare performance by Emeli Sandé, who we had not seen once before.*
Fatboy Slim DJ'd inside an absolutely giant squid.
And people dressed up as newspapers and had lightbulbs strapped to their head for no reason.
Not forgetting George Michael performing a new song called "White Light".
But then after what seemed forever (and a lot of wine), a line of taxis turned up at the stadium.
History. Was. Officially. Made.
The best bit was when the Spice Girls started dancing with each other but then Posh posed at the side.
For what seemed like an eternity.
And then they were hoisted on to the top of the taxi cabs and a metallic zimmer frame appeared.
And drove them around like this.
We then saw Boris Johnson dancing like this.
And, of course, at the very end of the performance, we saw Posh Spice not realising that her taxi was about to move away from her, but she kept her composure.
Thank you, Spice Girls. You saved us.
