INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21Alive) -- An Indianapolis realtor frustrated with the city's pothole problem, came up with an inventive way to protest the delay in street repairs.

According to a report from WTHR, Kurt Flock vented his frustrations with the city's crumbling streets by planting a tree in a large pothole on Mass. Avenue. He then took to YouTube and posted a video urging volunteers to "Adopt a Pothole."

Officials from the city weren't amused with Flock's faux pothole campaign according to the realtor.

"They thought people might be confused that the city would actually be running an adopt a pothole program and requested I take that reference down from the video," said Flock

Flock says he has no plans for taking the video down.
