Priceless Publicity

Kyle Krichbaum is an 11 year old boy from Adrian, MI. The thing that
makes Kyle unique is that while his friends are playing video games,
Kyle is collecting vacuum cleaners!  He says he’s been a vacuum cleaner
enthusiast since he was "little".  His collection, which numbers 125
and growing, includes a Hoover vac built in 1909.

Recently, Kyle was a guest on the Megan Mulally Show, where he showed off someKyle_belt
of his favorites and even showed Mullaly how to change a belt. The clip is available on YouTube

When asked to reccomend a vacuum for viewers, Kyle immediately suggested the Riccar Brilliance
(made right here in Missouri by Tacony Manufacturing).  He says "It’s
the best vacuum for your carpet and bare floors."  Mulally surprised
Kyle by presenting him with a brand new Brilliance on the show.

We’re not sure how the producers of the TV show found out about Kyle,
but, the free publicity generated by his apearance, as they say on the
Master Card commercials, is priceless.  In addition to the Mulally
program, Kyle was also featured on the local ABC station’s local news.Kyle_brilliance1

Rumor has it that Kyle might  become a regular on the Mulally show
and that another "well-known" talk show might be considering him as a
guest as well.

Stay tuned.

Update:  Kyle has also appeared on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.  Unfortunately, he didn’t mention his favorite vacuum.  If you’d like to see the clip, it’s on YouTube.
