In the 43-second-long promo, Barbie (Robbie) is shown driving a car and at one point even piloting a speedboat, as she enlightens two girls, who clearly hail from outside, about the workings of BarbieLand. “Essentially, everything that men do in your world, women do in ours,” she says. “What about the Kens?” is the next question posed to her. But Barbie doesn’t have an answer.
