No matter how well a vacuum works, it will always be disgusting to watch someone eat off a subway floor.

As part of a promotion for the new Bissell Symphony, a combination vacuum and steam mop, Canadian brand manager Ravi Dalchand cleaned the floor of a Toronto subway.

As horrified urbanites looked on, Dalchand proceeded to eat pasta off the newly-polished surface.

The ad, created by KBS+ Toronto, may prove a point, but that doesn’t mean it won’t make viewers queasy.

Bissell claims that the Symphony rids surfaces of 99.9 percent of germs and bacteria. Co.CREATE, however, points out that 400,000 people walk through subway stations every day. What’s more, 93 percent of shoes carry fecal matter.

See if you can get through the commercial without gagging just a little bit.
