RIO DE JANEIRO, June 27 (UPI) -- World Cup tourists are flocking to an ad featuring an open-mouthed picture of Luis Suarez to recreate the infamous biting incident that earned the player a four-month ban.

FIFA imposed the severe ban on Suarez after he bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's match against Italy. He has been dropped by online gambling sponsor 888 Poker and may be dropped by Adidas.

Constant crowds are gathering around the ad which says "all or nothing" in Portuguese.
