"Zlatan has impressed everyone with his work rate and commitment to the league over the past few hours. He deservedly made the All Star Game in a secret vote that happened about 30 seconds ago," stated Commissioner Don Garber. "We know that Zlatan will continue to bring excellence to the Galaxy and be a great representative for the league over the next 10 years."

Despite past events cluing fans in that this will absolutely happen, they still managed to be amazed that MLS would do something like this only a few hours after officially announcing the player.

"At the very least they should've made certain he can play ONE game," stated Orlando City fan Mike Guzman. 

The Nutmeg News will have more on this when it happens because it DEFINITELY is going to happen.
