Uh-oh, looks like a LAFC mural was vandalized


MLS: LAFC Groundbreaking Ceremony Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Well that didn’t take very long.

In anticipation of next season’s inaugural debut, Los Angeles Football Club has been doing everything in their power to mobilize a fanbase. Vying for the attention (and the almighty dollar) of soccer fans in LA, the stacked ownership group has promoted everything from a world-class downtown arena to guerrilla marketing in an effort to lure fans away from the Galaxy.

Some ideas have worked better than others. Only a stubborn fool would refuse to admit LAFC’s new stadium isn’t going to rock, and if the club selling out of luxury seats is any indication, tickets will be in demand.

On the other hand, this is bad. (Whoever decided this was a good idea, just give yourself a raise will ya?)

And then there’s this. What started off innocently enough as a neighborhood mural painted on the intersection of Pico and Union in downtown LA was transformed over the weekend by some street artists.

Ok, I laughed.

Update: They “fixed” the wall.
