30 Barbie brand collaborations that have us seeing pink

Bonus: Google x Barbie

The Google search result for Greta Gerwig features a pink overlay and links ahead of the Barbie the Movie premiere

This one’s not an official brand collaboration, but a little Google Easter egg. When you Google “Barbie,” “Barbie the Movie,” “Greta Gerwig,” “Margot Robbie,” or “Ryan Gossling,” you’ll get a pink Google search results page!

Why are these Barbie brand collaborations important?

Greta Gerwig’s interpretation of Barbie and the movie’s cast are set to challenge norms and break boundaries. And the Barbie brand collaborations we see today further encourage conversations around representation for minority groups, including the LGBTQ+ community.

Plus, these collaborations keep fans excited about the upcoming movie release and generate more hype around it.

As a result, the movie has already been banned in Vietnam and condemned by Christians.

While the Barbie film’s premise is intriguingly gay, to say the least, the film’s marketing strategy has been nothing short of revolutionary, painting the world pink—and quite literally causing a pink paint shortage.

This Barbie toy to movie transition is apparently just the start for Mattel, as they’re looking to launch an entire movieverse featuring classic toy lines including Hot Wheels, Magic 8 Ball, UNO, and more.

Barbie The Movie hits theaters on Friday, July 21, so get ready and grab your tickets, if you’re not among the 40,000+ people already partaking in the Barbenheimer double feature!

It’s sure to be a movie experience that you won’t forget.
