10 of the best Suarez 'bitegate' memes
Published 27/06/2014 | 15:24
Luis Suarez's "bitegate" controversy in this years World Cup led to an influx of video and photo memes of the forward across the web.
Suarez's third ban for biting, teamed with several unfortunate photographs of the player with his mouth open have provided the perfect catalyst for Internet gold.
Here are some of the best memes that circulated social media.
1. Suarez' billboard
Luis Suarez (unfortunate) poster campaign for Adidas on Copacabana beach has become a tourist attraction, with people queuing up to get their photos taken with the open-mouth portrait. Most are placing their shoulder in front of his open mouth, in a nod to 'bitegate', but some are putting their whole bodies in there just to mix it up.
2. 'Suarez Bit My Finger'
A creative edit of the YouTube classic 'Charlie Bit My Finger', this video is already on almost 1m views. We kid you not.
3. FIFA "cheat codes"
According to Twitter user @_StrictlySoccer, FIFA "released cheat codes" for biting with Suarez. While they aren't real cheat codes, we're sure someone somewhere will hack the game and make it work (and get 1m views on YouTube).
Not stated whether these pretend cheats are for FIFA 14 or FIFA World Cup but we know which one we'd find funnier.
4. The Suarez Of The Lambs
Another great offering from parody website 'The Poke', 'The Suarez of The Lambs' is another creative edit with a classic - this time, splicing the forward with 'Silence of The Lambs' in the place of Hannibal Lector.
