Last week, Gut Check reported on the FTC's agreement with Phusion Projects wherein the company who sells the infamous "alcopop" Four Loko will start printing clear warnings on the labels about the amount of alcohol per big ass can. The whole kerfluffle got Gut Check thinking: We know folks love their Four Loko, but how do they count the ways, so to speak?
Instagram proved a veritable gold mine of photographic odes to Four Loko, and we were struck both by the sheer number of photos as well as the brilliant artistry of them all. We also detected artistic themes within the Four Loko Instagram genre, and these themes were just too good to keep to ourselves.
So sit back, crack open an ice cold 23.5-ounce can of awesome, and get click on through our Four Loko gallery.
1. Four Loko means togetherness.
2. Four Loko is a throwback. (On Thursdays, people like to post pictures from the past with the hashtag "throwbackthursday" or something similar. Apparently, many people have fond Four loko memories.)
3. Portraits look better with Four Loko in them.
4. Four Loko is for lovers.
5. Four Loko goes well with marijuana.
6. Animals love Four Loko.
And remember, Gut Check wants you to drink responsibly.
