Barbie, manufactured by American toy company Mattel, will celebrate her 65th birthday in the real world. The recent movie has brought this doll back to the trending topics, and its success can be attributed in part to excellent marketing that deserves an A+ score. Let’s closely research several aspects that influenced search and instant content development.

Part 1: Barbie Movie and Marketing

The marketing team behind the Barbie movie has a keen understanding of the importance of crafting captivating content that can capture the interest of its viewers and potentially become viral.

The film’s marketing campaign was massive and included pink billboards with only the film’s release date in cities, news on the world's deficiency of specific pink-tone paints, a pink Barbie DreamHouse in Malibu that superfans could rent on Airbnb, and hundreds of AR performances.

In addition to traditional advertising methods, the film secured numerous brand deals for Barbie film-branded merchandise.

A fan-made crossover event, “Barbenheimer,” was also a huge part of it. According to the executive VP of worldwide programming, over 20,000 tickets have been sold at AMC Theaters to see Barbie and Oppenheimer on the same day.

Part 2: Barbie’s Search Marketing

A Barbie Easter Egg feature has been unveiled by Google ahead of the release. These Easter Eggs can be found on the search queries of "Greta Gerwig," "Margot Robbie," and "Ryan Gosling."

If you're unfamiliar with Google's Easter Eggs feature, it has been previously released for popular movies like Batman, TV shows like Friends, and video game series like The Last of Us.
