Vacuum Cleaner Vs Fire (VIDEO)

We haven't reviewed a Dyson vacuum lately here at HuffPost, but if we do in the future we'll know how to go about it:

A YouTube user has posted a video of what he claims is a Dyson vacuum cleaner successfully 'sucking up' fire.

"The missus now has a new DC50," the poster writes.

Now, we're not quite sure this is showing what it claims. Some YouTube commenters have questioned whether the video is in fact computer generated (we doubt that) or actually just shows the vacuum managing to survive long enough for the flames to burn naturally out.

What do you think? Take a look above - but for the love of all that is good and pure, don't try it yourself.
