EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE AREA 51 INVASION
Two weeks ago, Facebook user @ShitPostInShambles created an event with two other users titled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop Us All” that’s set to take place September 20. The mission of the Area 51 Invasion, Simply put, to storm Area 51 and “ see them aliens .” Since the event’s creation, more than (wait for it) 1.1 million people have signed up in Amargosa Valley, Nevada.
In full, the event description reads “ We will all meet up at Area 51 Alien centre tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we Naruto-run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them aliens.”
Still lost? You have the right to be. TBH, but don’t worry. Here’s a detailed explanation of what this Area 51 raid is all about and how you can join if you want to be part of this possibly fake, questionable event.
SO………EXACTLY WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT
Well, that part remains really unclear so far. There’s no explanation about why the event was created or why it has got so much traction, but after spreading through the internet like wildfire, it’s clear that thousands of people believe in extraterrestrial life either jokingly…. Or not.
OKAY, BUT IS THIS SH*T FOR REAL THOUGH
This part remains up in the air, so we’ll have to wait until September to find out. There are two reasons as to why that post is a big fat joke because
(1) it’s literally attached to the sh*t posting Facebook page and
(2) the event description mentions running Naruto is a Japanese television series about a young ninja named Naruto Uzumaki who runs in a very unique way. TBQH, they way Naruto runs is pretty much impossible to nail in real life. Here is a frame of reference, since you totally need it
Feel free to try this at home, but do NOT try this at Area 51(unless you have a death wish)
Although it’s highly unlikely that all 1.1 million people are going to show up to Amorgos Valley,there are people who might be taking this seriously. A’Le’Inn- a hotel in a nearby Nevada town -has experienced a serious uptick in the callers requesting rooms on the Area 51 invasion date. “They’re are coming, they’re serious,” says Connie West the co-owner of the Inn.
HOW IS AREA 51 PREPARING FOR THIS MASSIVE INFLUX OF PEOPLE
It isn’t quite clear what specific precautions or drastic measures Area 51 will take to prevent this civilian attack from happening, but a spokesperson told THE TIMES that “any attempt to illegally access military installation or military training area is dangerous.” This makes sense, considering that Area 51 is a secret military base that’s part of the Nellis Air Force Base in southern Nevada, which is designed to test and train combat aircraft…meaning that the consequences for trespassing could literally be deadly, others speculate that area 51 is a secret military base where the US manufactures it nuclear arsenal.
