Co-founder Chris Hunter (portrayed by Jason Sudeikis), isn't the only one defending the beverage. The Baltimore Sun says fears over effects of the drink have reached the level of hysteria. Thought Catalog goes so far as to characterize Four Loko as the absinthe of our generation. What do you think?
