No One Asked For This Four Loko & Fleshlight Collaboration. Anyway, Here's A F**K Can.

In the final years of the aughts, a new kind of alcoholic beverage exploded in popularity, a sweetened, high-ABV malt beverage generously sprinkled with caffeine.
The synergistic effects of caffeine and alcohol proved to be both potent and successful, and while there were many other brands, it was Four Loko that captured the internet’s attention. An organic fan base grew around the absurdity of the drink and its powerful ability to get one blitzed for a few bucks, with caffeine keeping drinkers up for hours in a drunken stupor.
While the poor man's speedball went away in 2010 when Four Loko removed caffeine from their products, the brand’s internet notoriety remained well-planted.
And what better way to parlay that internet cred than with a collaboration with premium male sex toy maker Fleshlight? Their original line of toys included models designed to appear like everyday objects such as flashlights and beverage cans.
Those that still hold an ardent flame in their heart for blackout juice, one so intense that it inspires fantasies of congress with a can of Four Loko, are in luck as LA-based designing duo Pizzaslime brought together the two brands in a limited-edition crank can collaboration.
The Four Loko Fleshlight sports a red camo pattern similar to their official packaging, and the beverage’s logo features prominently on the front with Fleshlight’s logo appearing much smaller just above. Each pleasure portal comes in a special brown bag package, completing the alchy/incognito-wanker ensemble.
Pizzaslime says they were “inspired by the spirit of Steve Jobs and Leonardo Da Vinci” and set out to answer the age-old question, “wouldn’t it be cool if I could have sex with a Four Loko?”
Pizzaslime is no stranger to being edgelords, lampooning celebrities with their social media posts and merch, and they count DJs like Skrillex, Diplo, and actor Ryan Gosling as fans.
If you want to get your hands on a Four Loko Fleshlight, they’re available now, while supplies last for $69 (hehe, get it?) at fleshlight.com (NSFW link).
