We love when someone can take a joke, because we truly believe that it’s important to be able to laugh at ones self. Especially when the making fun of you occurs in one of the biggest movies in the world.
If you’ve seen Barbie, you know that there is a part of you that is wondering how the script got by Mattel, but are so thankful that it did. The movie is so good and is the type of cinema to bring us back to the theaters. We need more movies that are smart, innovative, and just all around amazing.
One scene that we loved was Will Ferrell parodying the CEO of Mattel, But what did he think about it?
“I’m a big fan of Will, ever since the Zoolander days. There are so many elements of humor and self-deprecation in the movie,” Ynon Kreiz, the CEO of Mattel shared when speaking to Variety, “And we embrace that. We take our brands very seriously. We take what we do very seriously. But we don’t take ourselves too seriously.”
We’re glad he didn’t take it too seriously. Life is way too short.
Barbie is in theaters now.
