Pedestrians walk behind the group as they perform the routine in a row while children play and dance around them.
The alternate video appears to have been filmed at the same time and place as the original, which was filmed on Dublin’s Carnew Street.
While the new video only focuses on the Spice Girls dancing in the middle of the street, the original started with the girls banging on doors and singing to the camera.
In the first video, the ladies get into all kinds of mischief with the local children, including games of jumping rope, hopscotch, hula hoop, cat’s cradle, and pat-a-cake while the town elders look on in disapproval.

Speaking of the famous video, Mel B said it wasn’t planned and the band were given freedom to do their own thing (via night pattern).
“There wasn’t a storyboard for this video – it was more trial and error,” revealed Mel B. “It wasn’t planned down to the last detail and it was completely free. It’s like everything we do – complete chaos. , so the director has to be able to encompass us all, as well as put his ideas on top of that, and make it all flow.”
It comes after the release of Spiceworld25 last November, which celebrated 25 years of the studio album.
