If you happened to attend Florida International University's loss to Duke over the weekend at FIU Stadium, you may have noticed some signs of the Dos Equis guy with a panther head, a few poorly drawn faces, and a Chuck Testa reference up on the Jumbotron.
There's an explanation for that -- trolls.
The group of folks doing it -- who say on their Facebook page that they're going to keep bringing posters of FIU-inspired internet memes to all of the Golden Panthers' home games -- have one mission: "To ensure that each FIU game is properly trolled."
On Saturday, they did just that -- there were posters of the "Forever Alone" character in a Duke T-shirt, "Rage Guy" shaped as Roary the Panther, and the aforementioned Dos Equis guy with a panther head, saying, "I don't always win, but when I do, I devastate."
If you're familiar with internet memes, you can bet your bottom dollar these folks come from Reddit. (Don't worry, ma'am; they're from the internet.)
For your viewing pleasure, the group -- which calls itself "The FIU Meme Generators" on Facebook -- has posted a few previews of the signs you may see at upcoming games:
