Burnaby South MP and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are set to team up for a livestream of the video game Among Us.

Singh tweeted on Thursday that he would be playing the game live on Friday evening. Among Us involves players deciphering who among the group is the “imposter” and is killing other crewmates on a spaceship.

He then tweeted to ask Ocasio-Cortez – one of America’s most popular politicians - if she wanted to join.

AOC - as she is often referred to - agreed to take part. 

“Canadian Members of Parliament & US Members of Congress venting each other into space. What could go wrong? I’m in @theJagmeetSingh,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

The stream will begin at 7 p.m. EST on Friday and can be found here.

AOC streamed the game last month and reached more than 400,000 users.
