While Trussel was driving to a friend's house Tuesday, he came across an eight-foot deep pothole. Trussel jumped into the pothole filled with water and posted the photo on Instagram, with the caption, "Chillin in my new hot tub. #jacksonlife."

Trussel hopes that in addition to providing a good laugh, city leaders will be prompted to take action and fix Jackson's road issues.
