Hey architect! Did you get your architecture degree from the back of a cereal box? Maybe you should just stick to building LEGO playsets. Or at least only catering to supervillains.

A new skyscraper in London nicknamed the “Walkie Talkie” has melted a car parked nearby because the curved and mirrored exterior of the building focuses the sun’s energy on a nearby street in the afternoon.

The car belongs to Martin Lindsay, the director of a tiling company, who parked his Jaguar in central London’s Eastcheap on Thursday afternoon. The car was in the ray for just an hour but the panels were buckled and there was reportedly a smell of burning plastic.

Unbelievable: An egg is fried in intense sunlight reflected from the Walkie-Talkie building, in Eastcheap in the City of London
