6 Memes That Perfectly Sum Up Internet's Barbie Obsession
This Barbie is excited to see what more Greta Gerwig has in store.
It's safe to say that yesterday's release of the posters and trailer for Greta Gerwig's upcoming film Barbie has the Internet abuzz.
And for good reason: everything from the stellar cast of big industry names to the bright and shiny color scheme to the clever concept is so good that people can't wait to see it in theaters.
The Internet responded by doing what it does best: turning it into a hilarious meme.
Succession 's Roy siblings Shiv and Kendall were also memed into the Barbie universe. Shiv Roy, being the badass that she is, was made into a corporate CEO Barbie, while Kendall was destined to remain just Ken. It's in the name!
The meme became bigger than TV fandoms and found its way to several celebrities. Jamie Lee Curtis, who was already the center of social media attention earlier this year, did not escape the fate of becoming a Barbie.
Nor did singer Phoebe Bridgers, although some fans argue that she would make a much better Ken.
Karen Gillan may have made the smartest move of all, not just waiting for someone to make her into a meme, but leaning into it herself.
The Guardians Of The Galaxy star posted a picture of her character Nebula posing as a cyborg Barbie. Too bad fans didn't get to see one for another character of hers, Doctor Who 's Amy Pond.
Barbie is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 21, 2023.
Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling are starring as Barbie and Ken, but there are plenty of other faces to look forward to given the huge cast with more than a few standout names.
Stay tuned for more updates on the movie!
