What Things Would Be Different About Barbie If She Was From Texas?
The new Barbie movie is drawing huge crowds these days and has made "pink the new black".
I'm not planning on seeing this one as, thankfully, with regard to Barbie, my daughters are past that.
I think the pics I've seen on social media of guys getting all dolled up for it are pretty cool though.
It's not often you see a big, burly guy wearing a pink top and tutu to match his 4-ish year old daughter, you know? Outside the house, anyway ...
The movie caused an interesting side effect. Production of Barbie used so much of a certain shade of pink that it sparked an international shortage.
Yep, Hollywood bought almost all of it. That's either a ton of paint purchased or the paint industry doesn't make all that much fluorescent pink paint. One of the two.
Anyway, the fairy tale world of Barbie is loaded with all kinds of fantasy, girly, princess type accessories. Had Barbie been from Texas though, some things would probably have been different.
The Barbie Dream House would have been a single level, ranch style home with a pool, a huge smoker in the back yard and a garage converted into a lounge.
Barbie's fancy, dream sports car would have been more along the lines of a (pink) jeep. Just what a girl needs to get down to the lake or out to the shootin' range.
Something like this maybe ...
Clothing is a push as fancy dresses and "Daisy Dukes" go hand in hand in Texas ... and both work well with pink cowboy boots.
I'm pretty sure both "Texas" Barbie and "Texas" Ken would have guns as part of their accessory kits.
Ken?? Texas girls don't go for posers.
If Ken wants to stay around, he needs to buy a 4x4 and/or a Harley, love football and learn to work that smoker as well as he does Barbie.
Honestly, this could so be Ken's future ...
Around those parts, GI Joe's the front runner.
A head's up though for both Ken AND Joe ... they make rock star dolls now too.
Chicks dig rock stars.
