Capitalism, and a entire lotta glitter, received right now.

The Los Angeles Auto Present is full of futuristic idea vehicles and excessive tech EVs. However the car I noticed at the annual conference that I needed the absolute most was a glitter-covered convertible with a bubblegum pink inside from… Barbie.

In a hallway throughout from some type of military inexperienced all-terrain EV golf cart scenario, there was a show that would not have stood out extra from all of the beige upholstery and grey fits. The ground was painted with rainbow swirls and a background with the Barbie brand confirmed a technicolor freeway floating off into a shiny blue and pink wonderland. That was the setting for the major occasion, the Barbie EXTRA car. 

The car is a teeny convertible with winged doorways, rainbow rims, fluffy pink headrests, and of course that glitter paint job. The “license plate” under a jaunty spoiler reads “Barbie” and the headlights and  brakelights are stars.

No two methods about it: I need the Barbie car. I need to blast Hoku’s Excellent Day and roll as much as my bestie’s home, honkin’ BEEP BEEP for her to get in so we are able to go to the mall. We’ll sip cherry cola and put on barrettes and impractical sneakers. VROOM VROOM, step on it, Barbie! 

I feel I want this car????

The car at the Auto Present was really drivable as a result of it is simply a modified Fiat convertible. Sadly, Mattel shouldn’t be manufacturing or promoting this car for all of us Barbies with drivers licenses. It’s, of course, a advertising stunt.

The car show was selling a new line of Barbies and their new “EXTRA” — sure, as in, “she’s so additional” — car.

“The Barbie Further dolls embody maximalism to the max,” learn the solely clarification for what the hell was occurring at the Barbie sales space. “This trendy crew has a ‘extra is extra’ perspective — even their car is sooo EXTRA!”

I do not care that it is a stunt meant to promote dolls with clean plastic crotches. This car rocks. Why cannot it’s mine? I need it. I need the Barbie car. Give it to me. BEEP!
