Dylan Johnson got an incredible birthday surprise on his fourteenth birthday.

Since he was diagnosed with autism at the age of two, Dylan has always loved vacuum cleaners — more so than any other toy.

So for his fourteenth birthday, his mother, Jodie, wanted to do something extra special for Dylan. She was planning on a birthday party with a vacuum-themed cake, but she wanted to go a step further.

So she wrote to Kirby Company, the company who makes his favorite vacuum, and asked if a salesman could come over and do a demonstration. She made it clear that they were not interested in buying a vacuum, but that she would absolutely pay a flat fee for a demonstration.

Well, Dylan ended up getting that demonstration, plus so much more!

Watch the video to learn more about the best birthday surprise ever!
