It hasn’t been easy for Ken these past few years, living without the perfect doll companion. Barbie left the smooth-looking fellow around this time seven years ago, following a 43 year-long relationship. Now Ken is hoping she will reconsider in time for their would-be 50th anniversary.
Ken, or should we say his creators at Mattel, have set up a website where interested parties can cast their votes on the matter. Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare and YouTube has been heavily used in the campaign to get us involved. Whether or not this will sway you depends, but the newest Ken doll is supposed to be “the ultimate boyfriend, as he says whatever you want him to say”.
It might be time for the two to get back together, after all that is the spirit of the season. Ken has taken stock of his life and “revamped his mind, body and soul, while Barbie … well she has a deeper tan, at least. A match made in heaven? It’s up to you.
