Traffic in Malaysia's capital city was disrupted on Wednesday (July 2) after a road caved in due to the collapse of an underground tunnel being constructed. The result: two large sinkholes.
According to Malaysian media, part of the road at the intersection of Jalan Pudu and Jalan Hang Tuah sunk after an underground tunnel, which forms part of the Pudu underpass project by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), collapsed at 10.38am. The second cave-in at 12.20pm resulted in a 10-metre deep sinkhole.
While this is no laughing matter, that didn’t stop netizens from seeing the lighter side of things.
Within hours of the incident, witty memes attributing the collapse to a multitude of sources, from Marvel’s Thor and Loki, to Godzilla and Transformers’ Optimus Prime, went viral on social media.
Some memes even poked fun at authorities, who are pictured using duct tape to “repair” cracks in the road.
