I just noticed that he has the same poster, he (cueball) just turned it upside-down and drew a lens on it. 02:53, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

The poster is not the same poster turned upside-down. If you look at the rainbow, the rainbow still matches up with the original poster on the left, meaning that if you turned the poster on the right "right-side up", the rainbow would be upside-down when compared to the one on the left.-- 06:56, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Note also that cueball's side of the room is an inverse of the left side of the room in other ways. The left bed has linens, the right does not, the left side of the room is messy, the right is not, the person on the left is sitting at a desktop, cueball is standing at a laptop and so on.

Also worth mentioning that this album cover is a very popular - to the point of cliche - poster to have in a student dorm. 14:26, 15 March 2013 (UTC)Chris C

The original vinyl sleeve actually looks like those two posters but backwards. The back of the jacket is split light being recombined by a prism and shot at an upwards angle into the prism on the front cover, where it is split again. Demonstrated here: 20:25, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Also, the other figure in the dorm seems to be the "total douchebag" with a goatee and glasses from I think this is his only other appearance, does this say something about Randall's view of Pink Floyd and their fans? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

That goatee/glasses figure is also a psychologist in and a person riding the escalator in 06:07, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
