    The new Barbie movie has everyone stocking up on pink paint

    The new ‘Barbie’ movie has everyone stocking up on pink paint…... Did the 'Barbie' movie really cause a run on pink paint? Let's get the full picture...

    As any Barbie fan knows, life in plastic is fantastic — and also very pink. So much so, in fact, that the makers of the highly anticipated live-action movie say they wiped out a company's entire global supply of one shade of it. "The world ran out of pink," production designer Sarah Greenwood told Architectural Digest early last week.

    She said construction of the expansive, rosy-hued Barbieland — at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, England — had caused an international run on the fluorescent shade of Rosco paint. Rosco is known for supplying the entertainment industry with products like scenic paints, color filters and other equipment, including certain tints specifically formulated for the screen. And it's now painting a fuller picture of Greenwood's comments.

    Lauren Proud, Rosco's vice president of global marketing, told the Los Angeles Times on Friday that "they used as much paint as we had" — but that it was in short supply to begin with during the movie's production in 2022.

    I question the use of the word "everyone", as Barbie fans are almost certainly a minority.

    I wonder about the humor level of someone that took the word "everyone" in the title literally.

    I question the use of the word "everyone" here. I think that Barbie does not have a majority cult following.

    There is such a thing as "titty pink", but not all titties are pink, and the term "$#@! pink" would have somewhat obscene connotation, although it is more accurate.

    When we moved to Phoenix in '93 and began house-hunting, one of the first places we looked at was a three bedroom house that was pink on the outside, and turned out to be all pink on the inside, as well, including the carpet. We kept looking and ended up buying a house a couple of streets over. I should drive through the old neighborhood some time and see if that house is still pink.
