In a new Barbie commercial, hidden cameras capture real reactions from strangers when little girls act out adult jobs.

Those jobs include a professor, a veterinarian, a docent at a museum, a soccer coach and a business woman.

According to their website, Barbie said the point of the commercial is to teach girls ‘you can be anything.’

They said that  for 56 years, Barbie has been inspiring girls and leading by example with the variety of dolls they have created over time.

“My whole philosophy of Barbie was that, through the doll, the little girl could be anything she wanted to be. Barbie always represented the fact that a woman has choices,” said Barbie creator Ruth Handler.
