The sound you just heard was the Mormon Tabernacle Choir chanting 'but whhhhhhhy??' in perfect unision.
Well, I can tell you it wasn't due to a failed attempt at becoming an avant-garde artist, nor was it due to a disturbing obsession with the p-plate pop star, nor was I ever on crack.
I made this because I was asked to... and if Britney had to morph into a vacuum cleaner for just a day (hang on that's actually a really good idea...) don't you think she'd look a little like this? Oh c'mon, just a little...
When I worked as a television reporter, part of my job was to participate in the odd charity event with other Z-grade celebrities no one has ever heard of. As part of a Hoover/Clean Up Australia campaign, I was asked to design a vacuum cleaner. Given that I was an entertainment reporter and it was 2008, was there ever a choice but train-wreck Britney?
When I turned up at the actual event, I was bewildered to see others that had designed creepy vacuum cleaners were actually fairly cool people like Kirk Pengilly, Carla Zampatti and even Lincoln Hall: an Australian rock climber who nearly died on Mt Everest - so much so, he was left up there, presumed dead, and his family were even told he had died. He still had life in his lungs though and managed to defy the odds and climb down on his last legs to turn up on his family's doorstep alive (a true story and a riveting book).
The night before this event, B was keeping me up till the wee hours with the light on; his nose in Lincoln's book which he couldn't put down. We were stunned at the coincidence when we noticed Lincoln's Everest-themed vacuum cleaner sitting right next to mine! I also couldn't help but notice he was missing several fingers as B cornered him for a chat.
B acting up again with my Britney... and look - it's right next to Lincoln's!
What's the craziest thing you've ever made?
