So It's Come To This...

We've all heard that in the future robots would take over all of our jobs. In a lot of ways it's true. Then a lot of people have lost their jobs due to them being sent to other countries. But never, never, did I believe that Barbie dolls would take over modeling jobs. Is this what it's come to?

I was over at OldNavy.com and right there on the home page. The scariest Barbie dolls you've ever seen, modeling the new lines. First off, that just makes me want to close out of the site. Those things are disturbing on so many levels.


The ones on the left look like cross dressing Ken dolls. Not that I have an issue with that, but really, it's kinda weird. Not to mention, what are they wearing? Maybe I have zero fashion sense but seriously, I would never ever put that stuff on my body. I guess you have to be made of plastic to pull it off?


Don't even get me started on the "chick" in the middle. Seriously? Does Old Navy think this is cute for their site? It's scary! I don't love it. OK, off to check out the deals at Old Navy. :-D

yikes! I want to see their clothes on real people, not on a plastic mannequin! That's not cool at all.

Lisa said...

eww that is kinda creepy ! and I agree with Tara I would like to see it on Real People !

Cindy said...

Have you seen their new commercial? These things talk to each other! Weird!

Sarah said...

Uhhh, yeah in one of the commercials one of the creatures head spins around so she can look at her own butt. Convenient yes. Creepy even more so!

My problem with it is, Mannequins haven't had kids. They dont have the curves and real women have. Anything looks good on them or on a hanger. I want to see what the clothes look like on someone that with 15 pounds overweight and actually has thighs, boobs and a butt!!!

LOL. I actually jumped over from the UBP and was reading through your previous posts (ah, blogs, it brings out the voyerism in us all). I had to laugh when I saw your comment on the Old Navy flyer. I guess times are tough when they can't afford real people. Just strange. I thought they were advertising kids toys at first :-P I'm glad I hoped by. Thanks for the chuckle. Enjoy the rest of the party. (Oh, love your photos too). Cheers,
