DeadBlimey, Limey!
It'the 'Shark Lady' vs. 'The Dancin' Dyson Diva, Donegan'!!!
If THIS isn't one of the most offensive commercials as of late, not sure what could be.
We could do without 'Prancing Priss' and the obvious slap - why not a simple comparison?
No thanks, Shark peeps - that is not quality advertising.
I've already got $5 set aside that say Dyson will simply ignore your ad, rather than attempt to compete with it.
No, we've neither of your products, much less are looking for either.

Does anyone really pay 6 bills for a vacuum? I'm happy with my 10yr. old Hoover.

OuchWith only the 'best and most loving intentions'..
*I* once bought MissyDWolf a SHARP (*not* SHARK) Vac, for 'Valentine's Day'.
It was a 'top-of-the-line', $200 model.
Did that about 20 years ago.
Did it at LUNCH, on Valentine's Day - then proudly showed it off, at work.
All the gents told me I was not only nuts, but an idiot.
All the ladies told me I was f*&ked, but wasn't about to get so.
It was a very stylish, REALLY shiny, jet-black vac.
Went over like a lead balloon, but she wanted another one for the upstairs (no way! *I* didn't fall for that!), then wanted me to show her how to use it a few times - from one end of the house. to the other.
It was a 'no-win' gift from the start.
But I didn't learn, just then, NO!
I bought her a $200 Rowena Iron, for XMAS.
THAT is when I 'got the message' and actually felt the 'lead balloon'.

Everything I've ever had from Shark has broken practically on the first use. The sewing machine? Don't want to see an ad like this comparing themselves to Singer. Yes, the Shark cost $20 and the Singer $100, but the quality difference was that much as well (as in the Singer still works and the Shark got returned twice and then just went to the trash, where it obviously belonged in the first place). I'm guessing it's a similar situation with the vacuums (and yes, I am even more biased - I absolutely love my Dyson, it's the best vacuum I've ever had and I don't think I will ever go back.)

I feel your pain. I also had to learn the hard way. It was 27 years ago and I had been married 2 years. We were shopping in a local 'upscale' department store when she noticed a set of ceramic kitchen cannisters. They were good quality, imported from Italy, and fairly expensive. She stated that she would "really like to have them in our kitchen". It was about a Month before Christmas so in my total ignorance I assumed this was a hint. Of course the 'lead balloon' dropped on Christmas day. Even though I somehow had the presence of mind to also give her a nice little gold bracelet, that in no way cancelled the gift of 'kitchen ware'. I could count on being reminded for 18 more Christmas's. To this day I have maintained my 100% failure rate concerning what a woman actually means as opposed to what she has actually said. I'm sorry Pa but the iron for Christmas could possibly be diagnosed as a suicide attempt considering it's potential as a lethal weapon!

CIH-(and product reviews) I may spend the money on a Dyson, the old Eureka smart vac has alot of miles on her. I work fewer hours than my spouse so I maintain the house inside and out. With a 75 lb animule in the house a good vacuum is important.
