  • This death is also known as "Scrap-Nel" on the Spike TV website.
  • According to the narrator, the faux artist's French accent is phony, indicating that he himself is not French at all. But, in the Spike (now Paramount Network) website description, he is described to be French. The latter could be an error.
    • Additionally, the website version, he is only said to be a sculptor, not an artist with various techniques.
