In this clip, we see the trio of unwitting Boro supporters turning up to the pub in Baby, Ginger and Scary outfits.
Needless to say, they are greeted with uproarious laughter – as well as an airing of the 1997 hit “Spice Up Your Life”.

The Middlesbrough Spice Girls take the prank in good humour, with Scary even donning a Mel B mask and dancing for the camera.
