Vacuums in Pop Culture

Last time we took a spin around the living room with our cordless vacuum cleaner the AirRam, we felt that he was smiling at us. Maybe we took a few spins than needed aroAirRam1und the room, but we think the AirRam is starting to develop his own personality here at Gtech.

And if the AirRam is developing that pop cultural appeal, we have to wonder: where does the AirRam fit into the greater conversation of vacuums throughout pop culture history? Well, we’re still figuring it out. We’re still getting to know this dapper little guy! In the mean time, here’s a series of other vacuums from pop culture past:

Famous Vacuums in Pop Culture

kirby1

 

Kirby, from “The Brave Little Toaster” (1987)

He was grumpy, nervy, neurotic, and also endearing. He grew into a hero over the course of the film.

kirby 2

 

Kirby, from several Nintendo games

Not a vacuum, you say? Apparently, you’ve forgotten that Kirby’s signature move was to    suck his opponents up (presumably into tidy bales) and absorb their powers. Also, he was undeniably adorable.

nono

 

Noo Noo, the incredibly bizarre vacuum friend of the Teletubbies

He was their excitable compadre who periodically lost control and vacuumed up all of their possessions. Why? It was the Teletubbies; we have no idea.

 

vacu2

 

The people-sucking vacuums in 2010’s “Skyline”

They took alien abduction to a new level, vacuuming literally thousands of people up at a stretch. But how are they on carpets?

hocus pocus

 

The vacuum serving as a witch’s broom in 1993’s “Hocus Pocus”

Sarah Jessica Parker loses her broom, and a magical vacuum comes to her rescue. See the magic sparks flying out from the bottom? We wouldn’t trust it on our carpet.

 

darkside

 

The killer vacuum a child willed into existence on “Hush” from the 80s horror series “Tales from the Darkside”

Just what it sounds like. It sucked… SOULS!

 

These are just a couple sentences in a much longer conversation: vacuums across the pop culture encyclopedia. What will the legacy of our AirRam be at the end of the day? Only time will tell, but we’re certain it will be one of the good guy robots, not one of the bad guys. After all, this cordless vacuum cleaner is just way too good looking to be a villain.
