But that’s exactly what happened to Japanese students over the weekend taking an English language listening test of all things. Imagine sitting in a deadly silent exam hall, desperately trying to recall all the words you’d learnt, only to be confronted with this.

Not only are these pictures incredibly off-putting, but it was literally the first question, possibly forcing students to constrain giggles for the whole test. The accompanying audio, which students would have to listen to in order to pick the correct bizarre character, was this totally natural English conversation. Yes, I too often utter the phrase ‘for a stronger impact, give it wings to fly’. 確かに｢heavy impact｣とは言ってたけど、これはheavy impact過ぎるだろ— よくしき@ (@yokushiki_re) 19 January 2019 One Twitter user noted that although the conversation called for an impactful character, perhaps these illustrations had too much impact. After baffled students put the illustrations online for the whole of Japan to see, soon the internet was inundated with fan art and tributes to these four compelling characters. センターリスニングのあいつ pic.twitter.com/o0LUZFcXGe— 飛沫かもめ (@kamome_hika) 19 January 2019 2019 センター リスニング ハイライト pic.twitter.com/1WXriWMljB— せ や (@gtr50318881) 19 January 2019 試験開始直後に多くの受験生を動揺させたセンターリスニングの人参を描き直してみた pic.twitter.com/Yj5gFN5WuL— 十六夜 RAVEN (@Y16d39ydy) 19 January 2019 受験生明日も頑張ってくださいあったかくして忘れ物しないようにね#センター #リスニング pic.twitter.com/oM88GpGzlr— ぽぽん汰 (@fa_supo) 19 January 2019 Even the creator of Pop Team Epic got in on the action, redrawing the legendary winged carrot in his classic style. 今日の pic.twitter.com/iUarRO7x5N— 大川ぶくぶ/bkub (@bkub_comic) 20 January 2019 He even inspired a bento lunch box. センター試験２日目の弁当しんどすぎる wwwwww#センター試験 pic.twitter.com/6SSbXlr04S— いろは (@IROHA_2525_) 20 January 2019 As hilarious as these illustrations are, it's hard not to feel bad for any students who found them distracting. Hopefully next time the exam board will put more importance on the hard-working students' concentration, rather than the comedy value of the questions! By - Jess.
