Howard’s surprised to see so many students at the Campus but Mrs Tembe points out they aren’t potential customers – they are hoping to see some graffiti. Jimmi signs some of them up, though, and tells Howard they should be grateful to the artist – this is good for business! Barry assures Howard he’ll remove any future graffiti. When more graffiti appears, Jimmi takes a photo and sends it to Al, who zooms in on it and uncovers something very interesting…
Al shows Howard a tag on the graffiti – it’s been done by a hot new artist whose work can be worth a small fortune! When Howard remembers Barry’s words from earlier, he rushes over to the Campus just as he’s removed the last of the graffiti – there will be no money now. Then the Vice Chancellor calls to say he won’t be backing Howard’s scheme for enrolling new students – from what he’s seen the Campus is doing fine without further investment. Howard’s gutted!
