As the old, catchy Barbie tune goes, “Be who you wanna be, B-A-R-B-I-E.” And this new commercial takes Barbie’s slogan to the next level by imagining a world where girls can be whatever they want.
So what would these girls be?
A little professor giving a lecture on the brain to a class of university students: “Do you know why dogs aren’t as smart as people? ’Cause there’s no high school for dogs!”
A little veterinarian showing off her handmade name tag while treating her furry patients.
A feisty little soccer coach in pink, drilling her team of male soccer players: “Knees up like unicorns, please!”
The big plot twist is revealed at the end, when we see a little girl playing with her Barbies, who are the university students and the professor.
The final words are “When a girl plays with Barbie, she imagines everything she can become.” To quote the Spice Girls, that’s some serious girl power!
