(noun) to vacuum.
The act of waking someone who is asleep up by turning on a vacuum in their room.
- Get out the vacuum and plug it in to an outlet in the hallway
- QUIETLY open the victim/roommates door and place the vacuum as far away from their bed as possible without waking them up
- Turn on the vacuum and RUN
Because the cord is in the hallway, the victim isn't able to yank on it to pull it off and must fumble around in the dark and half asleep to turn the vacuum off. It usually will take a couple minutes. Stand in the hallway and wait until it turns off, then you know you were successful.
To make it even better:
Have a friend who has never vacuumed anyone before do it, and then lock them in the room as soon as they turn the vacuum on so that when the victim wakes up, all they see is that person.
"Last night, we vacuumed Travis when we got home from the bars. As soon as Dan turned it on, Ryan and I locked him in the room. As soon as the vacuum turned off and the light came on, all we could hear was, "Oh hi Travis" by Dan. CLASSIC."
