Football loving men who love macho guy things love their daughters even more and gladly become “Dads Who Play Barbie” in this online short directed by Karen Cunningham of Slim Pictures for BBDO San Francisco.
In this piece we see real fathers involved in their daughters' imaginary play centered on Barbie dolls. A parting super explains exactly why: “Time spent in her imaginary world is an investment in her real world.” It’s a message that dovetails nicely with the Barbie campaign mantra telling girls that “You can be anything.”
