(DISCLAIMER: Watching the music video posted below may result in Aqua's song “Barbie Girl” getting stuck in your head for the remainder of the day, possibly for the remainder of the weekend. Actually, there’s a chance the song could get stuck in your head for the rest of your life. It's just that infectious. Proceed with caution.)
Up until a few nights ago, it'd been at least 10 years since I'd listened to pop quartet Aqua’s international hit “Barbie Girl”. (If you'd told me back in 1997 there'd come a day when "Barbie Girl" didn't play on the radio at least once an hour, I'd tell you to go eat some pizza-scented Gak. I wouldn't have believed you.) But thanks to SiriusXM station '90s on 9, my dry, Aqua-less spell was over. When the song began, I gasped, cranked the volume, and sang along. I'd missed it so much. After the song ended, I wanted to watch the music video. Proactive person that I am, I immediately pulled the music video up on the YouTube.
As I watched, I noticed the "Barbie Girl" music video is packed to the gills with life lessons. Let's dive in!
