Stephen Colbert's Election Screaming Booth Is Exactly What Voters Need As The Polls Close — VIDEO
Are you watching the Election Night results and feeling stressed? Do you see those numbers climbing and just want to scream? Don't worry, you're not the only one. On Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert opened a screaming booth, where you can go to let out all your frustrations about the current state of our country. Located in New York City, the screaming booth is at the Ed Sullivan Theater, according to Vulture. You can also watch the Facebook Live stream on The Late Night With Stephen Colbert 's page, which has since been viewed by more than 250,000 people. Honestly, what better way to let all those frustrations out?
OK, so maybe you're located halfway across the country. Or you could be glued to your couch watching the election results and unable to make a quick trip to the theater. But you know what? This is an idea you can replicate in your own home. You don't have to go to an actual screaming booth to let out all your feels. The overarching theme here is just embracing your feelings, whatever those may be. Fear, excitement, angst — there's a scream for any of those emotions.
You may be wondering, how does Colbert's screaming booth work? It's as straightforward as it sounds. It's a glass booth, where CBSN plays in the background. As the results unfold, so do all of the yells. I'm by no means a psychological expert, but I can certainly see some therapeutic benefits going on there. See for yourself below:
To be honest, one of the best parts of this whole #ScreamBooth is the Facebook comments section. As one of the top commenters pointed out, "Wait, is this booth like Monsters, Inc?! Will our screams be collected and used as a clean energy source to power the city?!?!" If only this was all a Pixar movie, right? At least that analogy can bring some slight humor to a stressful night.
Now seriously, go let your feelings out. Scream if you have to. You know that Colbert approves. And if you want an extra dose of this late-night host, you can tune into Colbert's live Election Night special at 11 p.m. EST on Showtime.
