Toronto nightclub hosts wild Barbie party and people were desperate to get tickets

Toronto's Kens and Barbies have been partying hard in celebration of the highly anticipated release of Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie.

From Barbie cocktail towers to bottle service delivered in a miniature electric Barbie Jeep, The Fifth Social Club delivered what might have been the wildest Barbie party amidst Toronto's Barbie-mania last weekend.
