Rumours has it that there a lot of…aliens living there. Yes, this is mostly part of pop culture and legend, but still, people seem to go crazy when it comes to meeting a “fellow alien”. The event gets a lot of traction and the #StormArea51 memes just couldn’t stop.
Basically, on June 27, a meme account, a content video creator account and an event planning account co-created an event called “Storm Area 51, They can’t Stop All of Us”. The event is still to take place on Sept. 20th, at 3.00 am.
“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens [sic] (…) P.S. Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet” , reads the Facebook event description and comments disclaimer.
