I've heard about Four Loko. Recently, I've even seen it on my local store shelves. But I hadn't really thought about it.
I just figured, Hey, I'll learn more about it when it kills a group of college freshman in my town and is discussed on my local news.
But then a "friend" gave me a Four Loko at an "alcohol party." (It's not that shady when you consider that I am 31 years old.) One sip of that watermelon-flavored poison and I immediately thought, Whoa! Kids today. Out of control. What happened to pouring a Mountain Dew into a half-drank MD 20/20?
Moral of the story: I think CollegeHumor does a great job with this "honest commercial" poking some fun at this malt beverage phenomenon. The old saying goes, "It's funny 'cause it's true," and with this one, I'm not sure where the truth ends and the exaggeration begins.
One thing I do know: It's 11am and it is Four Loko time! You're with me, right?
