Social media users are giving their favorite celebrities plastic fantastic makeovers as characters in the new "Barbie" movie.
The film's latest trailer and posters, released by Warner Bros. on Tuesday, became instant meme fodder for fans of the upcoming flick. Some used the comedy's tagline, "She's everything. He's just Ken," to share their takes on famous women they think are out of their partner's league.
Others used the poster's template to expand on the movie's already star-studded cast. The images feature characters from the movie, like Issa Rae as President Barbie or Nicola Coughlan as Diplomat Barbie, in front of a sparkling backdrop and a slogan about their doll.
A website called the Barbie Selfie Generator allows users to upload their own photos, write a custom tagline, and adjust the color of the backdrop. Anyone can now turn their favorite pop-culture moments, like Gwyneth Paltrow at her recent skiing trial, into a "Barbie" billboard.
