Food Samples Melt In Tokyo's Oppressive Heat Wave

Tokyo food samples melting

Summer is officially upon Tokyo, and this year she’s out for blood.

At time of writing, the temperature is expected to reach a high of 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit), the streets empty as the oppressive heat drives everyone indoors like so many ants scrambling from a magnifying glass beam.

Don’t believe it? No worries, we’ve brought photographic evidence (see right photo). 

That’s a couple of food samples from fast food purveyor Origin Bento, literally melting and bending in half from the sheer heat.

When the heat starts attacking harmless food samples, it’s only a matter of time before people start spontaneously combusting in the streets like the Raisin Bran sun mascot is literally hovering in close to offer us a heaping spoonful of whoop-arse.
