Should everything go according to plan, more than a half-million strangers will gather in a remote Nevada town in mid-September, united by a common goal: to raid Area 51 in the wee hours of the morning ‘ using a strength-in-numbers approach to reveal any extraterrestrial treasures stashed within the notoriously clandestine government base.

By Friday evening, more than 540,000 people from around the world had signed up to attend the joke Facebook event: ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’ ‘ and just as many had indicated they were ‘interested.’ Planned for Sept. 20 in Amargosa Valley, an hour’s drive from Las Vegas, the event page is filled with thousands of satirical posts and memes theorizing the best way to break into the top-secret facility.

Quite a lot has been going on:

‘They Can’t Stop All of Us.’ Thousands Sign Petition to Invade Area 51 to Find Those Aliens

More than 400,000 people have signed on to a Facebook event pledging to raid Nevada’s Area 51, a site long believed to be a secret alien holding site, on a mission to finally ‘see them aliens.’

As reported by Newsweek, the event, which was given the name ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,’ suggests that people from around the world gather in the Nevada desert to invade the site, located about 88 miles by road northwest of Las Vegas. The method of invasion that the site suggests is a frenzied ‘Naruto run’, inspired by Naruto Uzumaki the Japanese manga character who runs with head down and arms stretched behind. ‘We can move faster than their bullets,’ the event page reads.

Over 400,000 people joined a Facebook event planning Area 51 raid

The event, “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” is scheduled for September 20 and is an “X-Files” fan’s dream come true.

“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” the event description says.

The group plans to “Naruto Run” into the restricted government area so that they “move faster than their bullets.” To be clear, a “Naruto Run” is named for the popular anime and means to run very, very fast with arms pushed back and torso forward.

Half a million people pledge to storm Area 51 to ‘see them aliens’

“If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens,” the organizer wrote, referring to the Japanese anime “Naruto” title character’s distinct running style, in which he runs with his arms outstretched straight behind him. The term is also a popular meme.

Area 51 is the part of the Nevada desert located in the highly-classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, where conspiracy theorists believe UFO spacecraft are stored.

“Folks, bad news,” Facebook user Jen Petrilli, posted on the event’s discussion page. “This event is planned for September 20th. While I love this planning time, this gives them a lot of time to move the aliens out of Area 51. If we want to get our extraterrestrial pals into safe and loving arms, this needs to ASAP. Love, A friend to the aliens.”

Storm Area 51: Almost 500,000 people sign up to rush supposed UFO base to ‘see them aliens’

If you’ve ever wanted to get inside Area 51 in Nevada to see if there really are extraterrestrials, you’re not alone.

On one post detailing a plan on how to overtake the military base, the event’s organizer made sure to note that the group is a joke and in good fun.

‘Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet. I’m not responsible if people decide to actually storm area 51.’

Call to raid Area 51 draws hordes of alien hunters

Half a million people have signed up for a Facebook event to “storm” the restricted military base in southeastern Nevada, which has captivated generations of conspiracy theorists convinced that the 4,000-square-mile patch of desert might hold advanced technology from space aliens who have visited our planet.

The call to join the event ‘ labeled “Storm Area 51: They Can’t Stop All of Us” ‘ is a presumably playful invitation for a volunteer army to raid the Air Force base around dawn Sept. 20.
