Angst Barbie

I have a weird affinity for Barbie. As a kid in India and Bangladesh, I was certain that I'd look like her when I grew up. Everyone around had black hair and dark skin, and everyone in my family has dark hair, and so Barbie's coloring was a lot closer to mine than anyone else's. So I was sure that as soon as I hit 16 I'd turn into Barbie.

Kind of a twisted, horrifying expectation, really.

This short film on YouTube was made by my friend Vikki's friend. It's not suitable for work. Or for anyone who would be shocked by Barbies having sex.

  1. OMG, Lisa that was hysterical!! It reminded me of the puppet sex scenes in Team America. Don't know if you saw the movie but it's as disturbing as this clip was.

  2. I didn't see Team America, but I love how twisted and funny this clip is! I don't know Barry, the guy who made it. But my friend Vikki says he's completely hilarious, and I have to believe that's true.

  4. Everytime I try to watch Angst Barbie, one of the Spawn comes into the room or the internet hiccups. Arrrgh. Guess I'll just have to watch it at work!
