A Barbie Bowie

The folks at Mattel try to cash in on the 50th anniversary of Space Oddity with a Barbie doll dressed in Ziggy Stardust attire. From The Guardian:

Complete with red boots to match a backcombed mane of hair and a striped jumpsuit, plus some cosmic accessories and face paint, Barbie replicates the look of Bowie’s bisexual messenger from the stars – though her usual pleasant smile doesn’t quite match the intense stare usually associated with the character.

Can somebody explain to the Yanks that Space Oddity was released three years before David Bowie's creation of his alter ego?
