The official Queen of Christmas is gearing up for the holiday szn by giving us some major '90s nostalgia, and we can't get enough. Mariah Carey took to her TikTok to share a hilarious rendition of one of the most iconic scenes from her Honey music video, and she enlisted help from some pretty special guests, and again, we can't get enough!
Twenty-five years after the initial release of the theatrical music video, Ms. Carey has shared an adorable clip via TikTok to honor the songs 25th anniversary. If you recall, the James Bond meets 90s popstar-inspired music video starts with the singer being held hostage in a mansion by a group of mobsters, before she picks the lock on her handcuffs and escapes. The rest of the video shows Mariah running far away from her assailants via jet-ski, as she eventually breaks out into a choreographed dance and finds the love of her life on the island. Ah, the '90s.
Anyways, back to the TikTok. Carey took to the platform to recreate the first scene of the Honey music video, as she's held captive in a mansion in San Juan, except this time she's being held captive in her makeup chair wearing a cheetah print robe and using a gold chain as handcuffs. As she lip-syncs the famous pleas in Spanish, Millie Bobby Brown and her boyfriend Jake Bongiovi huddle around her, embracing the roles of the mobsters who are interrogating her. LOL. It doesn't stop there! The singers 11 year-old-twins, Moroccan and Monroe, and Carey's boyfriend Bryan Tanaka jump in on the action-playing villains in the short video. She hilariously captioned the post, "'Go eat a buffet,' quoting an iconic line from the music video.

So why the sudden Honey love? Well, the Always Be My Baby singer took to Instagram to announce a special 25th-anniversary edition of Butterfly, which includes eight new bonus tracks from the album's recordings plus a documentary about filming the iconic music video. "#Butterfly25 is here!!," Carey announced on Instagram, alongside a video clip set to the song The Roof (Back In Time). "Celebrating 25 … minutes … since the release of my favorite and probably most personal album." So if you're anything like us, we've already got Honey playing on repeat!
