On November 21, The Umbrella Academy tweeted out a clip of the cast members' reactions to receiving their very own Original Funko (doll), each custom-made to look like their characters.

However, what fans took note of, was Justin H. Min's outrageous fashion crime of wearing socks with sandals. Of course, Justin quickly tweets out his hilarious excuse.

Let's rewind.

The Umbrella Academy siblings were each gifted an Original Funko, and their reactions were caught on camera! Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison, Number 3) hopped up and down in excitement, and Tom Hopper (Luther, Number 1) was as equally excited. A hilarious contrast to Aidan Gallagher (Number Five) and Ellen Page (Vanya, Number 7) who showed their excitement more quietly. 

And finally, Justin H. Min (Ben, Number 2) with his "Oh my godddddd" excitement.

However, something else overshadowed the entire situation.

And that was Justin's socks with sandals clothing combination.

Check out fans' comments below:


"why are you in socks and sandals, justin? it’s not very fashionable of you."

With all the focus on his fashion, Justin quickly responded with a explanation as to why he was committing such an outrageous fashion crime:

"y’all trying to vibe check my sock and sandal sitch: while everyone else was cute and dolled up with their hair and makeup done because they were shooting today, i had just been woken up and thrown into this living room to open gifts like i was a paid child actor on xmas morning."

Hilariously, The Umbrella Academy had his back as they responded with this:

"and yet you truly served."

And attached, the group photo, except this time, it was zoomed onto Justin's freshly woken up face!

So, how was the filming for The Umbrella Academy season 2?

For Justin, it sounds like it was a lot harder than filming The Umbrella Academy season 1. Why? Well, on November 13, Justin revealed that he had scenes to shoot. However, he was suffering from a 102-degree fever. Still, Justin stayed positive throughout it as apparent from a short clip he uploaded on Twitter, saying, "The show must go on". And true to his personality, he ended the video with a dab.

The Umbrella Academy season 2 finished filming on November 22.
