The art of the El Trafico meme

Lulz for days


The beauty of soccer is in its simplicity. All you need is a ball and a goal.

Like the game of soccer, the beauty of the El Trafico memes that have become commonplace around social media are the fundamentals. All you need is basic photo editing software, a few logos, some wit and imagination and you can say whatever you like, using whatever cultural references you like, no matter how obscure.

When El Trafico is around the corner and some of the funnier minds around get to work? The creative mind can be a beautiful thing.

When LAFC supporters complained en mass to protest the cancellation of hundreds of tickets for El Trafico IV and sanctimoniously went full Helen Lovejoy, meme generators GalactiBros were quick to call them out on their dubious stance.

Following the match, The 3252 put out a statement asking the league to investigate a collision between Mohammed El-Muñir (Who’s already back, by the way) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“Bulls**t” exclaimed the Galaxy faithful, who once again were off to work.
