SAULT STE. MARIE, Ontario, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- A Canadian plumber says business is booming thanks to a viral photo of his truck, which is painted to make it look like the driver is sitting on a commode.

Nick Huckson, 25, owner of The Sault's Plumber in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, said his phone has been ringing off the hook ever since a photo went viral online showing the painting on the driver's side of his truck that makes it look like he's dropping a deuce while driving.


The photo was posted to Facebook by Classic Signs Inc., which was charged with the dirty deed of painting Huckson doing his doody.

"My phone hasn't stopped ringing," Huckson told KWQC-TV. "I was just hoping to get some attention here locally.  I had no idea the photo would go viral."

Huckson said the idea for the truck art came from his grandfather, who is also a plumber.

"I wanted a design for my truck that would be memorable, something that would make me stand out from the other plumbing businesses," Huckson said. "Had no idea it would lead to all this!"
