NEW BERLIN, Wis., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin 4-year-old fascinated by toilets is the star of a video produced by fixture-maker Kohler that has more than 100,000 hits on YouTube.

Dustin Kruse of New Berlin, who first started showing an interest in toilets when he was only 18-months-old, came to the attention of Kohler when he visited the company's Design Center in the city of the same name with parents Jim and Michele Kruse and his mother later sent the company a letter asking about a possible demo model of the boy's favorite toilet, a $380 dual-flush toilet, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday.

The company decided instead to send the family a free toilet with a company plumber to ensure it was properly installed.

The company filmed Dustin during a recent return to the Design Center, where dozens of different toilets are on display, and created a YouTube video that has gained more than 100,000 views.
