U.S. Election Night – The Academy of the Impossible

Tuesday Night / Early Wednesday Morning saw The Red States, The Blue States, The United States of America elect its FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT!!! again.

Four years ago in 2008, West End Torontonians communally pre-enjoyed tonight’s events for free, watching up on the big screen, at the Bloor Cinema. With a change in ownership and mandate at The Bloor, such nights alas are no longer possible.

Stepping into this wanting-to-watch-the-U.S. Election-with-strangers-and-friends fray was The Academy of the Impossible becoming venue for TruthMashup‘s open invite.

Here’s how we watched and waited via 140 characters until Barack Obama hit 270 Electoral Votes…

Do you find yourself talking to empty chairs? Are you frightened to death America will vote for Romney? Well then don’t be alone, come hang out at the Academy of the Impossible to celebrate the start of a new American Election Campaign! That’s right, after two years of hidden video cameras, homophobic fast food joints and even missspelling the word America, the United States Election is finally here!

Join us at the Academy of the Impossible on Tuesday November 6th to watch the U.S.A. elect a leader with the #topoli community. The guys at will start off the night with a live comedic podcast to set up the races to watch, all the while getting you caught up on the insanity that you’ve missed. We’ll be joined by special guests and countdown the funniest political YouTube moments of the last two years. Remember Herman Cain? Neither do we, but YouTube does!
Come watch the results roll in, while laughing at the most absurd media moments of the night.

So, don’t sit home alone and tweet this election by yourself, come hang out with us and tweet next to somebody! “Amercia Decides 2012” at the Academy of the Impossible will be this years most fun political meetup or Mitt Romney will give you your money back!

*No Secret Videotaping we promise!**
**We don’t actually promise that
