Barbie has been the doll of choice for little girls dating back decades, but a recently released ad for the playtime favorite features a boy for the first time. For all the parents out there with a little boy who loves Barbie, this video is a must-see!
"Moschino Barbie" is clad in a designer outfit courtesy of the Moschino clothing line. The media has been quick to praise the commercial, which was created by the premium designer brand.
Jeremy Scott, creative director for Moschino, pushed to feature a boy in the commercial saying, "I felt it was natural to have a little boy representing for all the little boys like myself who played with Barbies growing up."
The ad is being described by Moschino as a 'fauxmercial,' and has even been called a 'parody.' Despite this, the positive public response has probably been enough to inspire more boys in Barbie ads in the future.
