WATCH: So fierce! Boy stars in Barbie commercial for 1st time - but is it over the top?

NH1.com

The commercial making waves.

Should it be?

A boy starred in a new Moschino Barbie commercial - a pretty cool concept. A boy should be allowed to play with a doll, right?

But is it over the top?

Take a look at the commercial below:

Comments are all over the place across the web.

Some are praising it, saying the spot is a great step forward for gender neutrality in toys.

Others say the boy is being unnecessarily portrayed as a gay stereotype, and that he's a little too young to be doing so.

It could also be a genius marketing campaign - knowing specifically that a conversation would ensue.

For the record, the collector's doll (originally priced at $150) sold out in the first hour it was for sale.

And it's fetching close to $400 on resale sites.

So what do you think about the Moschino Barbie commerical?
