Watch: Trying To Pull Start A Vacuum Cleaner

That's NOT how this works!

A video has been making the rounds of an older fellow using the electric cord of a vacuum cleaner like a "pull start."  Like how you start a lawn mower.  He gives it a few tugs, looks "under the hood" . . . and then walks away in disgust.

There are similar videos like this on the Internet though, so it was probably a setup.
