Japan is suffering record heatwaves right now, causing heat strokes and all sorts of health problems. However, it seems that they’re also melting a few Japanese figures. Specifically, the ankles of a few figures gave way after the heat softened them up. Japanese Twitter user @genkinokakera recently posted a photo of his figure of Evangelion’s Ritsuko Akagi. Well, let’s just say that she’s been “hit by a smooth criminal”

And of course, it didn’t take long for the Michael Jackson jokes to pour in. This one comes from another twitter user, @ROLLS_Ash_Love.

So yeah, hit it Michael!

However, figures buckling under their own weight are not unheard of in Japan. Past heatwaves have had their own casualties. One twitter user even pointed out that it’s a summer tradition already…

In other words, the legendarily hot Japanese summers really live up to their name.
