This "Commuter Barbie" Parody Commercial Is Way Too Real For New Yorkers
"If she can't hear the cat callers, how will she know to smile?"
Finally, there's a doll for the subway-riding, S'well-bottle-sipping, NPR-listening, Trader-Joe's-bag-toting millennial in your life: Commuter Barbie!
And they even filmed a commercial advertising Commuter Barbie in all her Canada-Goose-coat-clad glory:
Commuter Barbie comes with all the essentials: a Metrocard, a Clif bar, an iPhone playing "This Barbie Life," a S'Well bottle, and a copy of Zadie Smith's "Swing Time."
And, of course, a Starbucks cup for "Babrie."
While the doll hits the nail on the head of millennial life in New York, Hsieh said she and her roommate didn't create Commuter Barbie in their own image.
Commuter Barbie is "just a girl you see commuting on the train that felt near and dear to us," said Hsieh.
