Unless you've been living under a rock or you've had no access to wifi over the past 48 hours, then you'll have probably – nay, definitely – seen all the tweets, memes, new character posters and everything else in between from the Barbie movie.

Earlier this week (Apr 4), a new trailer for Greta Gerwig's Barbie dropped alongside the movie's official tagline: "She's everything. He's just Ken."

The plot of the movie is being kept well under wraps, but the synopsis teases the idea that all Barbies must be perfect in every single aspect of their lives, while the Kens can merely just exist in Barbie Land: "To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you're a Ken."

In the new posters, all the Barbies are shown to have impressive skills and jobs. One is the President, one is a diplomat, one is a Nobel Prize winner, one is a celebrated author, one has a Pulitzer, one is a doctor, one is a Supreme Court Justice, one is a lawyer... And the Kens? Well, they're just Kens.

Now, people are turning the movie's tagline into a meme of its own, and applying the line to their favourite fictional characters. Here's some of the best memes so far.

Otis might be Ken, but he'd still take Ruby to see Barbie on opening night.

They call her Mother for a reason.
