Man eats off subway floor after using new vacuum to clean it



A vacuum cleaner company executive put his money where his mouth is -- by eating off the floor of a subway station.

Ravi Dalchand, a senior brand manager for Bissell Canada, vacuumed the floor of a Toronto Metro station before dumping pasta on it and eating in front of horrified onlookers.

A YouTube video of the stunt shows Marchand using the Symphony All-In-One Vacuum and Steam Mop to scrub the floor from a dirty shade of grey to a sparkling white.

At first, almost no one notices his exploits. Then he takes out a container of pasta and dramatically dumps it on the floor before tucking a napkin around his collar and kneeling down to eat his meal.

The revulsion sets in.

Jaws drop to the floor as he not only eats the pasta, but also mops up the remaining sauce with some pieces of Italian bread.

"Oh my god," shouts one woman.

"You're a sick dude," shouts a man.

Dalchand looks around at the clearly shaken crowd and nods with a satisfied grin on his face.

"I 100 percent stand behind this product," Dalchand says after his meal.

Bissell claims the vacuum kills 99.9 percent of all bacteria and germs.
