Somewhere right now, a bunch of nerds, Alien hunters, and very lonely men and women are gathered together having a conversation about invading Area 51. And it sounds like this…
Sadly this isn’t a joke. A Facebook event named Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us has become an internet sensation. Seriously. 530k people have allegedly pledged to storm the top-secret facility.
Here’s the plan, as per the creator of the event: “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.”
“Naruto run” refers to the main character in the eponymous Naruto anime, as seen below. So, that’s it. After decades of mystery, humanity will Naruto run its way to unravelling alien life.
It’s not going to happen. Unfortunately, the event is fake. Fortunately, the memes are real. In an instance of the internet unifying over a key issue of our time, the internet really gave us the goods.
