America’s Got Canada’s Talent
America’s Got Talent, but some of that talent happens to be Canadian. Comedian John Wing, originally from Sarnia, ON (now living in Los Angeles) appears on Tuesday night’s edition of NBC’s reality competition show America’s Got Talent. He needs votes to stay alive, but he’s at a disadvantage because all those folks he went to high school with and who lived on his paper route (did he have a paper route?) can’t vote for him.
Sure, voting is technically blocked in Canada, but there is a way around it. All you need is a VPN. Fire it up, and voila: the internet thinks you’re American. (If only O-1 Visas were this easy, right comics?)
Online voting is open until 6 a.m. EDT Wednesday.
Download Hotspot Shield. It has ads. It’s annoying. But it is safe, and almost every VPN user started here.
Cactus VPN offers a free trial for 24 hours – long enough to vote – and is a paid service after that.
If you’re at the point of truly resenting Hulu, you should invest a buck or two in Always VPN. It’s one of the few pay-as-you-go VPNs out there, so you can go a few months between SNL archive binges without paying for it.
Go forth and Canadianize.
