Six Five Six Four
Someone forwarded me this in 2022. TikTok user "@mrradtastic" rants about his misfortune in being ahead of the fashion curve.
Video description: The camera is pointed at a screen showing an early photo from the then-upcoming 2023 "Barbie" film. A man's voice yells while his finger jabs at the screen.
Man, yelling: I want a god-damn apology right the fuck now!
No, I know what you're thinking, I don't want an apology for these outfits. I personally want an apology because I made these shoes five years ago!
(The man holds up a pair of bright yellow shoes with bright orange laces and bright pink and blue adornments)
Okay? FIVE! And I was called a fashion disaster! Everyone just laughed at my garish shoes!
But then Barbie wears them, and suddenly it's great??
I spent the last five fucking years thinking that I was a fashion pariah! But no! I've been a prophet this whole time! Not just a prophet! I... have been Barbie!
I'M THE BARBIE GIRL, AND YOU'RE ALL LIVING IN MY WORLD!!
The punchline is a reference to the 1997 pop song "Barbie Girl" by the band Aqua. The song's official music video is on YouTube at time of writing.
