Throw Another Barbie on the Barbie?

I noticed that there are a lot of pop-cultural anniversaries coming up in 2019 the Year of the Pig. 
Barbie turns 60, while QT seems to be paying homage to Sharon Tate's passing away 50 years ago this year with his
'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' movie starring the live action Aussie Barbie actress Margot Robbie, who also plays Harley Quinn from the 'Suicide Squad' movie.
And 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' comes out on Kurbrick's birthday
Interesting combo of roles there for Margot if you could pop them all into one Barbie doll I think.
2019 also marks the 25th anniversary of 'Black Hole Sun' being released back in 1994 on Black Friday May 13th, with the acoustic track 'Like Suicide' on the B side of the single.
And who can forget the Barbie dolls on the BBQ in that 'Soundgarden' music clip?
I'll bet Nikki Osborne's 'Bad Barbie' comedy show is doing some extra business this year.
The 'throw another shrimp on the barbie' television commercial turns 35 in 2019, as well.
And 'Dumb and Dumber' celebrates a 25th anniversary, too.
So it's a big year for Barbies, Margot, Australia and pop-culture it seems for 2019.
Karl Lagerfeld Dies in the Year of the PIG, as Margot Robbie CHANELs Sharon Tate in 2019?
