The US government have spent years trying to hide whatever’s going on in Area 51 but their secrets won’t be safe for long because 1.2 million people have shown their support to storm the mysterious base. 


There’s no way they’ll be able to stop 1.2 million people. This could actually work, guys.

The plan to descend upon the base has gained traction since going viral over the last few days, with over a million people joining in to show their interest.

Admittedly the large amount of attention the plan has received has probably taken away the element of surprise but the plotters probably lost that the second they typed the words ‘area 51‘ online anyway. Those phone-hacking FBI workers would never let that one slip by without further investigation.


The plan comes in the form of a Facebook event, aptly titled ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’.

It’s set to go down on September 20 and although that does give those at Area 51 a fairly decent amount of time to prepare themselves, the Facebook page organiser revealed they have their own technique in mind to ensure success.

They write:

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 [sic] see them aliens.

On the off chance you’re interested in joining the masses and storming Area 51, ‘naruto’ running refers to the Naruto anime series in which the character Naruto is shown running with his arms angled behind his body. That piece of information will obviously be vital to avoid the bullets when the time comes.

The invaders will be divided into three groups: rock throwers, Naruto runners and ‘Kyles’ – a team of muscular teenagers with a penchant for kicking in drywall.

One keen Facebook user named Jackson posted a detailed plan of action on the event, explaining how Kyles would form the front line while the rock throwers launch pebbles at ‘the inevitable resistance’.

He points out that they don’t want to hurt the people protecting Area 51, they just want to ‘annoy them enough to not shoot the Kyles as often’. While all that’s going on, two Naruto runner battalions will ‘run full speed around the north and south flank’ and overwhelm the base.

Someone’s been kind enough to create a visual of the plan, if you’re struggling to imagine how it might go down:

Seems pretty foolproof, if you ask me.

There’s still a couple of months before this plan goes ahead so you have every opportunity to get involved!

On the off chance you’re successful, tell the aliens I say hello.
