Taobao be­gins sell­ing ‘Suarez corkscrews’

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

Uruguay soc­cer star Luis Suarez’s ap­par­ent bit­ing dur­ing a re­cent World Cup game has in­spired Chi­nese en­trepreneurs to be­gin sell­ing a range of corkscrews called the “Suarez Corkscrews” that are said to “open bot­tles nice and easy”. About 20 stores are sell­ing the prod­ucts on Taobao, a pop­u­lar shop­ping site in China, though it’s un­known who is man­u­fac­tur­ing them. An im­age of the Uruguayan’s open mouth is used in the prod­ucts’ pack­ag­ing. They cost be­tween sev­eral hun­dred yuan and 10,000 yuan ($1,605).
