There are mainly pointless designed object in the world, but this has got to top the list of wretched excess. GoVacuum.com has created a 24-carat gold vacuum cleaner that comes with the hefty price tag of $1 million. If you can afford to buy this contraption, the chances that you do your own house cleaning are very, very slim.
While you may think this garish gadget is a joke, GoVacuum is quick to quell such rumors – they describe their GoVacuum GV62711 as a ‘one-of-a-kind, commercial grade, 24k gold-plated, cleaning machine’. However Justin Haver, Vice President of sales and marketing at the firm is clearly on another planet. In a statement, he said: “This isn’t a joke, a fake product or publicity stunt as many people have thought.”
“Six months ago I got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and was blinded by golden light in my half-asleep daze, I thought why is there not a gold vacuum for sale? So, it took us about six months into creating the GV62711 24k gold-plated vacuum.” “Is it worth its weight in gold? No, but even the status and exclusivity of owning a vacuum like this can’t be measured in dollar and cents.”
Yes. Quite. We don’t know what kind of world Mr Havers lives in, but if anyone I knew purchased such an object, he would be ridiculed within an inch of his life… before I asked him for a loan. Clearly this horrific household item is for the millionaire who is so egotistical he has to make sure his cleaner’s products are as bling as his lifestyle.
GoVacuum.com has produced 100 of the special cleaners, but we’d be surprised if they sold one. However if you are curious – the vacuum cleaner is powered by a 10 amp motor and is equipped with a 14′ wide cleaning nozzle and anti-marring urethane wheels. The company even has a rap song promoting their one-of-a-kind vacuum. Watch at your peril.
