Ever wondered how your furry friend would look as a fashion icon? TikTok users have been morphing their dogs into Barbie dolls, but the results are horrifyingly amusing. As the anticipation for the new Barbie movie continues to rise, a fresh trend that pays homage to the iconic character is taking over TikTok’s ‘For You Page’, and let’s just say, the vibes are all but Barbie-like.

It all began with a new filter that changes users into Barbie dolls, and usually set to a remix of Aqua’s catchy hit, Barbie Girl. This creative and fun exercise quickly became a new sensation.

Suddenly, dogs on TikTok were being turned into dolls with a single click. While some transformations are super cute, most resemble dolls you may find in an adult novelty store.

This quirky TikTok trend comes just in time with the release of the upcoming Barbie movie on July 21. But here’s hoping that the on-screen Barbies are less ‘scary’ and more inspiring.

So, whether you want to jump on the bandwagon or simply enjoy the uncanny creations, keep an eye out on your TikTok feed for this new trend.
