vacuum for sale, only 1 million dollar$

Really, nothing says luxury like a vacuum, right?

That's GoVacuum's gamble. The company is offering a $1 million gold vacuum.

That's right. A one-million-dollar, 24-karat-gold-plated vacuum cleaner.

It's being offered at an introductory discount of 0.0001%. So you can pick it up now for a mere $999,999.

The bag is hand-sewn, and you can specify the material. (May we propose Vicuna wool, reportedly the most expensive fabric in the world at $4,000 a yard?)

The million-dollar vacuum is the brainchild of Justin Haver, who elaborates:

Does the gold serve any purpose here? Not even remotely, unless you count looking absolutely awesome as a purpose (I kind of do). This limited edition, one of a kind product is the ultimate in luxury. After all, the definition of luxury is, "purchasing something ridiculously extravagant just 'cause."

We're tickled to imagine who would use such a machine. Do billionaires vacuum? Would they trust the maid to use it?

The vacuum's profile is, we must acknowledge, perfectly banal. It's no Dyson. But it does have a "high-performing 10-amp motor"!

And? Shipping and engraving are free.

Act fast, though: Only 100 will ever be made, GoVacuum cautions.

So they took old, cheap vaccuums and plated them in gold? What an awful idea, they don't even look nice or classy, it looks like they took a piece of crap vaccuum and then painted it gold with a spray can lol, on the other hand, I'll take 7. Why? Just 'cause.
