Quick Curl Barbie and Good Guy/Bad Guy Ken


While I am curious as to what they put in Barbie’s hair to make it quick curl like it does in this commercial. Something much more interesting is going on here. I mean who knew that turning Ken from a good guy into a bad guy was as easy as changing a mustache into sideburns and that the bad guy Ken was the one with the mustache? It seemed that mustaches were thriving in the 1970s. Does that mean that all those mustachioed men were bad?

Even Magnum????
