Fashionista Barbie Invites You To Do Her Dance

Our hearts and minds are in the midst of a fierce battle: to love or loathe this YouTube video. It’s an instructional video on how to do “The Barbie,” a new dance created by the same genius (seriously) who created the moves in Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video, JaQuel Knight. The dance features lots of stopping, posing, swirling, snapping, and is set to — what else? “Barbie Girl,” the hit ’90′s pop song (which originally enraged Mattel). Now they’ve made nice and reworked it with lyrics like, “You can be a star, no matter who you are,” to make it more inspirational and stuff. So why the dance party? To celebrate the new Fashionista Barbie! Besides sporting a major wardrobe, the new doll, $20, sports some serious dance moves, too. She has flexible joints and can bend, twist and turn into one hundred different poses. Literally. The vid launched this morning on “Today,” and commercials for Fashionista Barbie featuring the song and dance will begin airing in mid-October to coincide with the sale date. Are you buying it?
