More Barbies like this, please!

In case you didn't know today (March 9) is National Barbie Day!

To pay homage to the blonde, plastic icon, Philadelphia-based choreographer and performance artist Gunnar Montana collaborated with fellow Philly artist and photographer Joe Mac to create a project that celebrates both Mattel's iconic toy brand and the leather community -- and the result was gay AF.

Sharing the results on Instagram, the fruit of Montana and Mac's labor was none other than a life-sized art installation entitled "Super Gay Barbie: Leather Daddy Edition," which featured Montana channeling his inner doll, donning a harness and heels in all of his Leather Daddy glory.

Of course, Leather Daddy Barbie is nothing without his accessories to play with, so Montana is also standing in a big toy box that features other accoutrements that include a whip, hankies of assorted colors, a pup mask, a pink motorcycle, and a leather vest (amongst other naughty things).

"You can be anything," Montana captioned the post of the life-sized art installation, referencing the doll brand's popular slogan.

This isn't the first time the two have created Barbie-themed greatness together, though! For last year's Barbie Day celebration, the two released their first "Super Gay Barbie," which featured Montana standing in a toy box with accessories that included a douche, weights, a cell phone preloaded with Grindr on it, and a kimono.

While this Montana and Mac's collab was just an art project, and not an actual Barbie doll for sale (*cries deeply*), it's not a far-fetched idea to think it can be!

Just last year, Mattel sold a limited-edition Mermaid Ken doll that wore a seashell harness (yes, a seashell harness) after customers voted for the design in the 2020 Barbie Signature Doll Design Showdown, an online poll where the long-running and inclusive doll brand's biggest fans got to vote to choose the next doll in Barbie's Signature line collection.



Considering how the Mermaid Ken doll is now completely sold-out (he went for $110 a pop for members of the Barbie Signature club), perhaps Mattel should give the gays what they and make Montana's Leather Daddy Barbie a reality! We know he would sell out like hot cakes!
