Zlatan Ibrahimovic backed up his claim of being a 'Ferrari among Fiats' when he scored the 'perfect' hat-trick on Saturday night.
The 37-year-old netted goals with his right foot, left foot and head to give LA Galaxy a huge win against Western Conference leaders Los Angeles.
If you haven't seen these highlights yet, then I highly recommend you take 30 seconds out of your day to watch it.
It was a memorable performance from Ibrahimovic, who celebrated his third and final goal by 'accidentally' flooring his opponent.
The super Swede was clearly a little too eager to celebrate. He goes flying!

Ahead of Saturday's game, the LA Galaxy striker was compared to Los Angeles striker Carlos Vela, who has been in fine form this season.
"You said right now you are the best player in Major League Soccer." said the reporter.
"There's another player in Los Angeles, Carlos Vela. In this moment he's got 19 goals and 12 assists and his team is leading the MLS.
"Do you still consider yourself the best player in Major League Soccer?"
"[Carlos Vela] is playing in MLS and he's in his prime. When I was 29 where was I?"- ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) July 18, 2019

Ibrahimovic, clearly taken aback by the question, was very straight forward with his answer, saying:
"By far, because if he's in his prime. How old is he? Twenty-nine and he's playing in MLS and he's in his prime.
"When I was 29 [I was in Europe]. Big difference."
The former Manchester United man later took aim at the Carlos Vela comparisons, saying it was a "mistake" to make that judgement.
"Please do not offend me, I don't need to prove nothing, even if I don't score the goals today," Ibrahimovic said in the post-match press conference.
"I have a lot of respect for Vela, he's a good player, but you did one mistake, you compared him with me, that was your biggest mistake."
He's still got it, folks.
