Just a month after U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Among Us Twitch stream garnered over 400,000 viewers, she’s ready to not be sus as she squares off against NDP leader Jagmeet Singh. The live stream will take place on Friday, November 27 at 7PM ET (4PM PT) on Singh’s official Twitch account.
So, how did this match up even come to be? The federal NDP leader sent out a tweet of his planned live stream while tagging AOC with the caption “@AOC are you in?”

The female leader responded back through her Twitter account, “Canadian Members of Parliament & US Members of Congress venting each other into space. What could go wrong? I’m in @theJagmeetSingh!”

The popular multi-player video game Among Us is similar to the concept of Mafia or Werewolf — set in outer space. Players take on one of two roles — an Imposter and Crewmates — where the majority of players are Crewmates trying to deduce who the Imposter is in their crew. Crewmates must complete tasks and figure out who among them is the Imposter before they sabotage the mission.
Up to ten players can participate in the game, which means some lucky folx will be able to play along with AOC and Jagmeet Singh during the live stream.
