KIEV, Ukraine, April 24 (UPI) -- A Ukrainian woman's plastic surgery-induced transformation into a real-life Barbie doll has been dramatized by a Taiwanese animation company.
Next Media Animation, a production company famous for satirical animated shorts depicting news events, created a short video depicting an animated version of model Valeria Lukyanova, 21, undergoing plastic surgery to emulate Barbie's huge chest, tiny waist, plastic-like skin and cartoonish facial features, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.
The video, which is set to 1990s Aqua hit "Barbie Girl," depicts the model laying on a surgical table while cartoonish sound effects, including sawing noises, play in the background.
The cartoon says Lukyanova describes herself as the "most famous woman on the Russian-language Internet" and lists her interests as making music and "astroplaning," or astral projecting.
Lukyanova hasn't publicly responded to the video.
