"Who Do You Think You Are" Is So Spice Girlsy
If you would be so kind, please think about all of the Spice Girls' music videos. If necessary, go ahead and revisit all of the exquisite videos on YouTube. After you've done so, please consider the following question: Which Spice Girls music video deserves to be crowned The Most Spice Girlsy Music Video? Is it "Wannabe"? Or might that title belong to "Spice Up Your Life"? Close, but no cigar. It's "Who Do You Think You Are", the music video that doubles down on each individual Spice's brand and is a small glimpse into the UK club culture of the late '90s. If the Spice Bus from Spice World morphed into night club, the rooms of Club Spice Bus would look like the rooms in the "Who Do You Think You Are" video. Maximum Spice-osity.
Quick clarification: In 1997, the Spice Girls shot two music videos for “Who Do You Think You Are”. The second version—which features Jennifer Saunders, Kathy Burke, Dawn French, Llewella Gideon, and Lulu dressed up like the Spice Girls—was made for a UK telethon event. While the Sugar Lumps' version is absolutely fabulous (see what I did there?), it is not the version I'm talking about. The original "Who Do You Think You Are" is The Most Spice Girlsy Music Video.
So, what makes it The Most Spice Girlsy Music Video? Pull up a seat and prepare yourself for enlightenment.
The wardrobe choices
Forget coordinating costumes; it's all about the Spices showing off their individuality.
Shake it to the right and to the left if you know that you feel fine.

The Posh Point
The gold-plated bowls/hubcaps/hardhats glued to the walls are pretty legendary, too.

What a goddess.

Just give in to the girl power. Let it wash over you, let it be tattooed to your torso, et cetera.
