Four Loko is a caffeinated malt beverage which myself and many of my friends enjoy. Recent legislation has threatened the sale of Four Loko in New York State. We ask Dennis Rosen, chairman of the NYS Liquor Authority, to rethink his stance under the belief that Four Loko is essential to New York City's well being and part of a balanced drink menu.8-bit rockers Anamanaguchi (whose new song we debuted a little over a month earlier) stood up and fought for our rights as free American beverage consumers by organizing (along with Ryder Ripps), and playing a stripped down set at, an outdoor Four Loko rally, as described above, in Union Square last night (11/17). Part vigil, part outdoor concert, part rally, and all crazy, onlookers were treated to an acoustic set from the band, as well as their fair share of public (or should I say pubic?) nudity. Leia was on hand for the action, and her very NSFW pictures (possibly disturbing), and some video testimonials to the power of the beverage, (you've been warned) are below...
It is my personal belief that New Yorker and American Forefather, Alexander Hamilt...on, would have enjoyed Four Loko and made it his drink of choice during the grueling Battle of Yorktown - as it is a drink which can keep you awake and warm - perfect for when Hamilton and General George Washington led the remaining 2000 soldiers of the Continental Army across the Hudson to Brooklyn in pure silence under the dark New York City moon - a maneuver which saved the army, won back New York and ultimately America from the taxing hand of the British.
Please join us on the steps of Union Square at 7pm on November 17th for this candle light vigil - share your voice, bring a sign, light a candle and lets UNITE AS ONE to stand for FREEDOM and something greater than the individual .. AS ONE WE CAN BE FOUR. -[Four Loko Supporters]
