A group of Brighton students discovered a giant Simpsons mural being painted on their house when they woke up this morning.
Passers-by stopped to watch as the Bartington Road mural took shape from 10am to 8pm tonight.
Brighton University student Samuel Irvine, 22, said: “I came down this morning to have a cigarette and there was a smell like nail polish.
“I was trying to work out wat it was and saw a ladder, then spotted half a Bart Simpson on the wall.
“Aroe told us what was happening and then Pat from Homelets came by and explained what was going on.
“I love it though, I think it’s great. We had the bright orange house on the corner which was visible and it’s even more visible now.”
He remained tight-lipped on why the Simpsons theme had been chosen.
The Viaduct House was painted after the council sent letters to people living in the street asking them to tidy up the outside of their houses.
