Watch an adorably confused baby go for a ride on a Roomba

When the house is clean, the Roomba finds other ways to be useful.

For the most part, people do not buy a Roomba because it’s the most efficient way to keep their house clean. They buy one because it’s awesome to have an adorable robot scooting around your house.

This is why we see so many videos of cats riding Roombas, dogs riding Roombas, and general Roomba hacks. They’re just way more interesting than normal household appliances. And if you have a small child and a Roomba—well, it’s obvious what you have to do.

We love this baby’s tragically confused expression. Life is very hard when you’re trapped on a slow-moving, baby-sized floor robot.
