The most my wife and I have ever paid for a vacuum cleaner is $142.99. We got it from Target. It’s a Bissell. A Bissell CleanView, to be specific, with “OnePass” technology, a turbo brush and five deep-cleaning settings. I’ve never actually used the turbo brush, but you can tell by looking at that bad-boy accessory it’s all business. Dust bunnies don’t stand a chance.

It does not “explore the way our desires and fantasies are manifested in everyday objects” as Koons’ art claims to do.But it does have a turbo brush I’m going to use someday, and when I do – look out!Also, to be fair, Koons’ vacuum art is really three vacuums – a Shelton Wet/Dry 10 Gallon Doubledecker atop two Hoover Convertibles – hermetically sealed in acrylic and awash in fluorescent lighting. Our Bissell is in the laundry room closet, which doesn’t have a light.ADVERTISEMENTThanks for watching!Visit WebsiteADVERTISEMENTThanks for watching!Visit WebsiteADVERTISEMENTThanks for watching!Visit WebsiteJeff Koons’ vacuum art was part of the Macklowe Art Collection, a staggering 65-piece trove of masterpieces that sold during two separate auctions at Sotheby’s for a total of $922.2 million, making it
