We were invited by Hasbro to be featured in a short videoclip in celebration of Transformers’ 30th Anniversary. Will there be mind-blowing Michael Bay explosions? Robot metal flying all over the city smashing into buildings and causing devastating chaos?
In the course of our 8 years’ stay at our humble apartment, we have gone through a total of 5 different vacuum cleaners, 2 of them handheld, and all of them sucked one way or another, and all not perfectly. And then I was introduced to Fluffy.
