Update: It turns out the advertisement is not a real advertisement :(

In a statement sent to BBC News by Mattel, the company clarified that this was a "fauxmercial".

"This video parodies iconic Barbie commercials from the 1980's starring a young [Moschino creative director] Jeremy Scott look alike. The video celebrates how boys and girls alike play with Barbie - it's all about self-expression, fashion, imagination and storytelling," the statement said.

Mattel said the commercial was created by them - but with Mr Scott calling the creative shots. The video is hosted on Moschino's YouTube page, not Barbie's.
