Vacuums usually aren’t scary. Then again, an automated robot patrolling your living room, inhaling everything in sight could be a little startling. Just ask Nick Thorburn from Canadian indie-rock outfit Islands, who, according to his Twitter account, ended up locking himself in his bathroom after unleashing a Roomba in his apartment. Okay, so maybe it isn’t a Robot Wars-ready death machine, but it doesn’t hurt to imagine. See below:
Locked myself in the bathroom ’til roomba is done. #scared
