Figuring out what to get for your mom on Mother’s Day can be a challenge. Well, have no fear because this Spice mom is here to tell you what she wants—what she really, really wants.
Mom-of-two Deva Dalporto runs the YouTube channel MyLifeSuckers and her latest video takes us back to the ’90s with a hilarious spoof on the Spice Girls’ hit song, “Wannabe.” While Dalporto sings the majority of the song herself (dressed as one of our fave celeb moms, Victoria Beckham a.k.a. Posh Spice), she’s got the rest of the Spice Moms crew around her doing some fun laundry basket choreography while dressed in the Spice Girls’ iconic styles.
We’d explain all the gems in this music video, but it’s really something you need to experience for yourself. Check it out below:
Amazing, isn’t it? It’s filled with so many great one-liners, and we really love how she mentions that if you’re going to make a meal for her on Mother’s Day, CLEAN UP AFTERWARDS. Nothing like getting a meal made for you and then having to clean up the mess they left making it. Like she says at the end of the chorus, “Life’s hard when you have kids” (duh).
98 Mother's Day gifts you'll actually wantAnother part we wanna give a special shout out to are all her takes on the iconic “zig-a-zig-ah” line such as “I wanna really, really, really wanna day at the spa” and “I wanna really, really, really drink my coffee while it’s hot” (so true, amiright ladies?).
So props to this mom and her creativity. Hopefully showing this video to your family will let them know what you really really want this Mother’s Day. It’s not passive aggressive at all, right?
P.S. This is a special reminder to take a moment this weekend to listen to the actual Spice Girls singing their classic Mother’s Day song, “Mama” because it’s guaranteed to give you all the feels. *cue the waterworks* You’re welcome.
