The media team at Turf Moor have been on top form this summer with their spoof transfer clips including a superb Tweenies effort.
But their latest version sees the Clarets take an extract from the new Barbie movie before confirming 20-year-old Ramsey’s arrival from Aston Villa.
The video, captioned “He’s Kenough”, shows the original Barbie and Ken – played by Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling – and a host of the other variations saying “hi” to each other on the beach.
The camera then cuts to Ramsey, leaning against the goalpost in front of a bright pink football pitch.
The waving midfield star says: “Hi Burnley!”
Barbie looks confused before Ramsey corrects himself: “I mean Barbie! Up the Clarets!”
The post was published at 9.30pm on Tuesday night and has been viewed 3.5million times within the first 12 hours.
One fan said: “This is gold.”
Another wrote: “You guys deserve to stay up purely based on announcement videos.”
A third added: “Burnley’s media team deserves a raise.”
And a final user replied with a Simpsons meme reading: “Stunning. Absolutely stunning.”
Ramsey – brother of Jacob – completed his move after 12 years with Aston Villa, joining the club at Under-9s and winning the FA Youth Cup in 2021.

He made just one Carabao Cup appearance but shone on loan at Cheltenham Town, Norwich and Middlesbrough.
The England U20 international, Burnley’s 11th new summer signing, said: “I’m absolutely buzzing. I have been waiting to be a Burnley player for a while now and I’m really happy it’s all officially done now. I can’t wait to get started.
“I can’t wipe my smile off my face. When you come to a new club you want the lads to welcome you in and everyone here has done that straight away. It’s been really easy to settle, everyone has been amazing.”
