Srimoyee Chowdhury’s movie “Barbie,” featuring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, has become a global sensation, captivating audiences worldwide. The movie’s success has given rise to a new trend called Barbiecore, supported by the innovative marketing team behind Barbie. Interestingly, even funeral homes have embraced this trend, as per reports from NY Post. Olivares Funeral Home has launched a line of Barbie-themed coffins, promoting the use of pink coffins with the catchy slogan, “Rest like Barbie.”

The vibrant promotional clip of the company showcases the eye-catching bright pink color of the Barbie-themed coffin, symbolizing the joy and vitality of cherished life moments. It emphasizes the importance of celebrating and remembering our stories with colors that represent love and unforgettable memories.

This trend is not confined to a single funeral home or location. Funeral homes in Mexico, El Salvador, and different parts of Latin America are also embracing the idea of offering loved ones a unique and colorful farewell. For instance, Alpha and Omega Funeral Home in Ahuachapan, El Salvador, managed by Undertaker Isaac Villegas, has been providing pink coffins for about a year.

To meet the increasing demand, Villegas’s funeral home has even offered a generous 30% discount on these distinct coffins. The response has been overwhelming, with approximately 40 inquiries about the coffin design. As a result, they have already entered into deals with at least 10 new clients, and the high demand has led to the stock being sold out.

The star-studded cast of the Barbie movie includes Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, Issa Rae, America Ferrera, and Will Ferrell. The film has garnered global attention and enthralled audiences worldwide, sparking the emergence of the Barbiecore trend.
