McKayla Maroney might just turn out to be the break out star of this year’s Olympics. She’s a talented gymnast, she’s got wonderfully meme-able facial expressions, and it certainly can’t hurt that she bears a striking resemblance to Posh Spice.
I mean, look at her. If this whole gymnastics thing doesn’t work out, young Ms. Maroney can always have a second career as a Victoria Beckham impersonator. Imagine how amazing it would be to see someone who looks just like Posh doing the dougie in head-to-toe Gucci and high heels:
So amazing. It’s also a plus that she has a sense of humor about herself. She will need to cut down on the smiling, though, because she doesn’t look as much like Posh when she smiles. (To be fair, we don’t know what Posh looks like when she smiles.)
And considering how hard the Spice Girls rocked it at the closing ceremony last night, there might actually be an opening for a new Posh Spice soon. Beckham has made to pretty clear it’s not going to be her–she could barely tear herself away from her illustrious fashion career for long enough to do a single performance. Why shouldn’t it be McKayla?
If you’re reading this, McKayla, you don’t have to give us an answer yet. Just think about it. Don’t you want to bring about world peace?
