If you sifted social media on Sunday, you probably saw one of the worst possible uses of the platform and one of the best. The latter being the continued groundswell of love for a plan to "storm Area 51." The classified government facility is best known to the public as a hub of alien conspiracy theories and pivotal scenes in Independence Day.
An event on Facebook suggests that people "all meet up" at Area 51 and "storm" the facility because "they can't stop all of us." The comically short event description concludes with "lets see them aliens." Nearly one million amateur Mulders and Scullys have signed on for the joke event, while another 814,000 have indicated that they're "interested" in the event.
The description also says, "If we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets." "Naruto run" is a reference to an anime character who runs with his head straight ahead and arms behind him.
While the event is a joke, the memes are oh, so real. We rounded up some of the best memes and the excellent, unclassified Area 51 jokes floating around social media in response to the event.
