Ken, of Barbie and Ken has turned 40.

Ken, of Barbie and Ken has turned 40. To mark the occasion, Mattel is releasing a hot, young, 20 year old secretary, that Ken is having an affair with, and a Porsche 911. (to complete the whole midlife crisis thing you see.)

Another victim falls to the tyranny of Mattel.
