"Fulla" -A Doll from the Middle East that Offers an Alternative to Barbie Who Could Get Banned in Iran (video)
Apparently Barbie has Iran’s main prosecutor shook. In a letter to Iranian Vice President Parviz Davoudi, General Ghorban Ali Dori Najafabada said that the plastic doll leads to negative social consequences. Duh! The sensitive prosecutor said “The displays of personalities such as Barbie, Batman, Spiderman and Harry Potter…are all warning bells to officials in the cultural arena.” When dressing, Iranian women are required to cover their whole body, a rule Barbie’s skanky ass has yet to follow. One of the Middle East’s answers to Barbie has been Fulla, a “classier” chick who remains fully covered at all times. To see Fulla in action, check her commercial after the jump.
