The teacher looks puzzled but then looks behind him into the staffroom, sees Mr Jones and starts laughing at how accurate it was.
Metal trivia: Neil Buchanan, the geezer who presented Art Attack, was in a NWOBHM band called Marseille who won the first battle of the bands at Wembley.
Wait, I thought this show aired only in Italy, is "art attack" known in the UK too?

I still remember his terrible jokes about the art he'd created as well. Like when he 'showed' a blank sheet of a4 and said it was a landscape drawing of the North Pole.
I was an adult when I realised 'Art Attack' was punning on 'Heart attack' smh
one of the strangest experiences of my life was turning on the TV in a hotel room in shanghai and finding Art Attack dubbed into Mandarin complete with statue head guy. it was like I'd slipped into a parallel dimension.
His fringe hair spells out ‘sex’ if you look closely
