SAULT STE. MARIE, Ontario – You have to wonder how long an Ontario plumber has been sitting on this idea.

Nick Huckson is turning heads with a new marketing tool for his business: a sign on the side of his truck that makes it looks like he’s, you know, doing his business.

Huckson started “The Sault’s Plumber” just six weeks ago. His grandfather, also a plumber, gave him the idea for the truck design. Huckson shared a Facebook post from “Classic Signs” showing off his truck’s new look, and people have definitely noticed.

He really only wanted to stand out among local plumbing businesses, but his phone hasn’t stopped ringing after people saw the attention-getting truck.

“I was just hoping to get some attention here locally. I had no idea the photo would go viral,” he told KWQC.

And viral it went. Huckson has received an overwhelming response, with comments and emails from as far away as London.
