When Brands Bite Back: World Cup Edition

luis-suarez-hed-2014

Just when you thought nothing interesting was going to come of the World Cup following that gut-wrenching tie against Portugal, we have a notable player accused of mastication.

During a game that pitted Uruguay against Italy, Luis Suarez (the gentleman seen checking his incisors above) got in a tangle with Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini (the other guy). And then, Suarez got the munchies and bit Chiellini. Thank God for Twitter, because some notable brands decided to have some fun at Suarez’s expense with hashtags, original thoughts, subtle product placement, and even a few sponsored tweets.

It was all in fun, of course, until Suarez got suspended for nine games and banned from “any football-related activity” for four months.

Yes, these were pretty good. But surely the copywriters among us can come up with some better, toothier, more biting puns.
