Four Loko, the ‘Absinthe of America,’ Gets the Seth Meyers Treatment on SNL


You’ve seen it kill kids, get banned, and be reproduced at home. This past weekend, the much-maligned caffeinated cocktail Four Loko, a/k/a “Blackout in a Can,” was featured on Weekend Update With Seth Meyers. 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?
