Birthday Party For A Pothole Favorite

Tijuana, Mexico

A group of young adults under the name of "Love Tijuana" (Amemos Tijuana) celebrated the one year "Birthday" of a pothole located at the Via Rapida (Tijuana's Freeway) with balloons, banners, and even hats.

The giant pothole that was covered with water was celebrated with a party on a sunny day that first seemed like a joke, but instead it was something that was done to attract the City Council's attention, who all just pretend to be deaf to all the complaints that are made about things around the city that are in plain sight.

In the video that was shot on February 23, guests arrived with piñatas, a cake, gifts, and of course with a wish for this hole to be repaired as soon as possible, which just their "luck", Public Works personnel coincidently showed up moments after to repair the pothole.

As shown in the video, "an hour later" workers arrived who when questioned by one of the group members, the worker replied that the city had this repair already planned for today
