Beware: Barbie in this video says CUSS WORDS (What the f***)

Uummm... I can't think of any alternative phrase this could be.... can you?

If I had bought this for my child I would be outraged. Totally unacceptable.

UPDATE: I found the story which clarifies the mistaken phrase

But the Barbie, whose phrases include "Amaze" and "I love a make-over", is actually saying, "Off the hook".

Toymaker Mattel said the dolls are for children to "enjoy and trust".

'It had to go'
Other phrases it says include "There is no substitute for glitter" and "To the salon".

It sounds to me like she's saying "off the hook". Then again I've never been much of a Barbie fan and now that my own daughter is grown I'm out of the loop when it comes to acceptable kids show lingo these days.

No reflection on you, tinker, but the video was just nonsensically ignorant. Who in their right mind would even think that whoever makes this doll would design it to say such a thing.

On second thought, it was probably not so much the content of the video as the content of the title that was important . People make these videos and put them up on youtube in the hopes that they will generate enough pageviews to sell advertising . The video was lame but it's the title that draws people in to watch the video

Who would be offended by this?

Seriously... Who?

Adults in the world need to grow the hell up and stop creating problems where there are none. We have enough real problems to deal with, without having this kind of Next Level BullS***™

I think mum needs to get some new hearing aids. Or her mind out of the gutter. Or both.

Well it is super superficial already. While it is not actually saying WTF it can be heard as you wish.

I think its very important to not let kids curse until they do so on their own. My first curse was "shut up". My dad insisted I say it to my sister. I never looked back. I was a sailor mouthed little kid.

I remember the feeling. SIN. LOL

I think alot of it is power of suggestion. When I first heard the video, I heard WTF... but after I found the story with the explanation, I now hear "off the hook"

You need to know something about kids. They're not all rainbows and lollipops. Yes they will be taught and know it's not right to swear or cuss in front of parents and adults, but in the school playground you can bet your bottom dollar that they are all like F this and F that.

Would I buy a swearing Barbie for a small child though? No, probably not. Because my household is no swearing especially if there are kids in the house.

But I guess everyone's different. Some parents are more relaxed with their kids behaviour.

Edit: I see it says off the hook, haha

EXACTLY. Alot of trouble would be brewin' for the kids and the parents when the young child starts sayin' that at preschool or elementary school.

Yea even though it says off the hook, because it's not very clear, the kids would probably just imitate the sounds, which would probably sound something like WTF haha.

Who cares? They learn how to swear from their friends and parents anyway.

Oh pffft, this sounds like "off the hook". Nice try on the video maker's part, but shocker FAIL.

Back in the early 2000's, I had a little Furby that had a suspicious vocab. I'm fairly sure it was supposed to be saying "Hug Me", but it sure sounded like "F me" to me & everyone else who heard it. It was a great laugh, but still, not intentionally dirty. At least I don't think it was intentional, it just sounded bad with the muffled speaker internally & the Furby voice.

< sigh > I miss F Me Furby. I wish I still had him, he was like a foolproof parlor trick.

Nevermind, not worth the trouble when it's obvious miscommunication. I'll just clarify the offending post.
