If you wanna hang with Mark Wahlberg, you have to know your Spice Girls.

While in London for a press event for Transformers: The Last Knight, the actor got together a group of journalists and filmed them recreating “Wannabe” on the stairs of the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, where the British pop group famously recorded the music video.

“We’re going right now. Spice Girls recreation,” Wahlberg says in the video, which was posted to Twitter by one of the self-dubbed “Spice Boys,” Kevin McCarthy, a film critic and reporter for the Fox 5 D.C. affiliate. McCarthy was joined by Chris Van Vliet, Xilla Valentine, Andrew Freund, and Scott Carty.

The gents had to actually sing “Wannabe,” though, in light of some technical difficulties with the playback. Watch below.

Carty posted a behind-the-scenes video documenting how the whole thing went down.

Wahlberg reprised his role as mechanic Cade Yeager in the latest Transformers, in theaters on June 21. He’s joined by Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Isabela Moner, and Jerrod Carmichael in the sequel about a war between humans and Transformers.

Wahlberg was also spotted returning as Dusty in the trailer for Daddy’s Home 2.
