Companies hungry for a piece of Suarez on Internet

Companies ranging from McDonalds to Trident chewing gum to JC Penney gobbled up the free publicity offered by Uruguay striker Luis Suarez's incredible bite on Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during a World Cup match on Tuesday.

Suarez was caught chomping on the Italian's shoulder near the end of Uruguay's 1-0 win, the third such indiscretion of his controversial career.

The incident was perfect fodder for Twitter with some of the world's biggest companies among those eager to get their teeth into a ripe advertising opportunity.







"Relax, they're twist off," Bud Light said of its beer caps, alongside a photo of a man with suspiciously Suarez looking teeth trying to open a bottle with his mouth.




Many of the tweets were addressed directly to Suarez himself, who has more than three million followers on twitter.




Translation: "Hi @luis16suarez, if you're really hungry why don't you take a bite out a BigMac."




No brand was too shy and no connection too tenuous. Even US department store JC Penney's got in on the act.
