In case you haven't seen the "Barbie" movie yet, it's a hoot. It's so popular that even college football coaches like Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin is jumping on the bandwagon.
In a video posted by his daughter Landry Kiffin on TikTok, Kiffin does his best Ken impression by singing the words to "I'm Just Ken" while rocking a pink collared shirt and visor on the back of a golf cart in what looks to be Ole Miss' indoor practice facility. Everything from his wardrobe choices to his choreography is just *chef's kiss*.
He is Kenough #barbie
Ken in the movie is played by Ryan Gosling, but the makers of "Barbie 2" should absolutely consider giving Kiffin a call to play him.
The comments in the video, which has close to a million views, also delivered. Many chimed in to say Kiffin's job is "clipboard," "football" or "sport," because Ken's job is the movie is just "beach."
To be honest, Kiffin is the perfect Ken because he also his Barbie by his side. The 48-year-old coach went public with his much younger girlfriend earlier this month. The Barbie in question, Sally Rychlak, seems to be having fun with Kiffin as an adorable couple. It's the first time Kiffin has went public with someone he's dated since his divorce from his ex-wife, Layla Kiffin, who he shares three kids with.

And just for the fun of it, let's take a look at the lyrics of the song, which in my opinion can apply to Kiffin.
Doesn't seem to matter what I doI'm always number two
I mean, Kiffin has always played second fiddle to Alabama coach Nick Saban, right?
'Cause I'm just Ken, anywhere else I'd be a tenIs it my destiny to live and die a life of blonde fragility? I'm just Ken Where I see love, she sees a friend What will it take for her to see the man behind the tan and fight for me?
This just sounds like something Kiffin's alleged alter ego Joey Freshwater would say at a bar.
Anyway, hopefully Kiffin and the Rebels are Kenough on the football field when they open the season against Mercer on Sept. 2.
