“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” the Facebook page reads. “If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them, aliens.”
In just three short sentences, the Facebook event page titled, “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” issues a tongue-in-cheek call to action. Get to this tourist attraction, coordinate entry, and storm Area 51!
The page went from silly goof to viral meme in a shockingly short time, and it’s easy to understand why: Aliens are a constant source of cultural interest, and the secretive US Air Force base is notoriously associated with housing secret aliens. And now, ahead of the coming September 20 event date, the nearby town of Rachel, Nevada is getting ready for an influx of new visitors.
The Little A’Le’Inn, in Rachel, Nevada, is a tourist-favorite stop near the USAF base known as Area 51. The 25-year-old hotel offers to house, and sells souvenirs — it is “booked solid” for the upcoming event, according to the website.
“MORE CAMPING MAY BECOME AVAILABLE,” it says on the website.
