Barbie Causes A Global Shortage of Pink Paint



By: Selena Sun


As many people know, Barbie uses a lot of pinks. In fact, Barbie used so much pink paint to paint the houses, cars, and accessories that they literally caused a company's entire global supply of one shade of pink paint to run out. "The world ran out of pink," production designer Sarah Greenwood told Architectural Digest early last week.


“She said construction of the expansive, rosy-hued Barbie Land — at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, England — had caused an international run on the fluorescent shade of Rosco paint.” This means that the Barbie film used so much pink paint that it caused a global shortage of paint in that specific color.
