Apparently this condom is very popular in Brazil right now. More than 2.1 million of these have been sold as of Thursday, according to The Wall Street Journal. It has the colours of the Brazilian flag and tastes like the Caipirinha, Brazil's signature drink. (Google Images)

These condoms created a lot of buzz during the lead-up to the tournament as well. The condoms themselves do not buzz.

Durex also got into the act with a commercial that pokes fun at diving players.

Soccer can create miracles. It can mend countries, bring people from different cultures together, and provide unbridled joy.

But this? Probably not.

Police are investigating.
