You may or may not have heard, but a couple of million people are planning on storming the notorious Area 51 this September.
A Facebook group, which actually started out as a joke, outlined a plan for a bunch of "naruto runners" and "kyles" to join forces and break into the secretive military base to find the aliens the US Government have been hiding from us for all these years.
However, the group turned serious real quick, with over 3 million people signing up to raid the compound. Welcome to the internet, everyone!
The "raid of Area 51" quickly turned into the "battle of Area 51", and one guy has expertly created a prediction video, which outlines what he thinks will go down on the fateful day of the attack. Though the video resembles a dramatic scene from Call of Duty, no details have been missed, making it a rather violent and gruesome prediction...
The Area 51 raid has been strategically planned out.Let's set the scene... The group’s creator, and overall master strategist, Jackson Barnes, outlined his plan of action, which involves plenty of “pebble throwing," “drywall punching," and “Naruto running".
He had a strict attack plan formulated.Writing in his original post, Jackson stated, "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. Let’s see them aliens."
Because inter-planetary wars are no walk in the park.And gaining access to one of the most secure military compounds in the world is never going to be an easy task. Jackson's plan states that the "Kyles" (emo kids who punch holes into drywall) will form the front line while the rock throwers will throw pebbles to distract the guards.
All in the while, the real attack will be taking place...Jackson outlined how the Naruto runners will run full speed (fast enough to dodge bullets, obviously) around the North and the South flanks of the compound.
But obviously it was a complete joke.Jackson expertly pranked ya'll! He signed off his original action plan post with, "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."
And "thumbsy uppies" he got...3 million of them, to be precise. Jackson's post blew up to a scale he never thought possible, with 1.3 million people showing an interest and 1.9 million actually vowing to storm the compound on September 20th.
He got the idea from a Joe Rogan podcast.Jackson revealed that he initially started the page after listening to Joe Rogan's interview with alien enthusiast, Bob Lazar. Lazar claims to have worked in and around Area 51 in the 1980s, and for over two hours he explained his experiences and answered questions about his claims.
Bob Lazar has made some wild claims in the past...Lazar was the man who initially brought the Area 51 to public attention in 1989 when he claimed to have been formerly employed at “S-4," a purported adjacent facility dedicated to unlocking the secrets of alien spacecraft in the custody of the U.S. government. And ever since, he has spurred a new generation of alien believers and enthusiasts all across the world.
And Jackson has now admitted that his page has got way out of hand.Speaking with NPR under the pseudonym Val, Roberts admitted that he set it up because he “thought it would be a funny idea for the meme page."
He stressed that he never actually intended to raid Area 51.“It just took off like wildfire. It’s entirely satirical though, and most people seem to understand that," he explained. The keyword here is “most," because, as we know, a couple of million avid supporters still plan on going ahead with the raid.
People just really want to see those aliens.And the internet has completely lost its mind with some excellent interstellar reactions and memes to the event.
Alien hunters far and wide are eager for the raid.
