So let’s begin the collective freakout over the latest Barbie commercial in 3..2..1..
The story behind this ad is simple: Mattel has recently released a limited edition Barbie clad in fashion designer Moschino accessories and clothes for the low low price of $150. With most stock already sold out in most stores, you can probably snag one on eBay for about $400, if you’re lucky.
So Mattel thought, “fuck it, let’s just hit this thing outta the park,” by casting a boy in their latest ad for the first time ever.
“Moschino Barbie is SO FIERCE!” says the little boy straight into the camera and into the angry nightmares of conservative America.
Change certainly is a’coming.
