It's compelling and somewhat flattering to think of Earth as the most dangerous place in the galaxy, with humans being the only ones crazy enough to tame it. This thought brings fun ideas such as the idea of humans as super resilient space orcs, or the idea that aliens trying to invade Earth could be stopped by local wildlife. It's informative, fun, and somewhat self indulgent.
After the surreal debacle that was the "Storm Area 51" Facebook event that actually ended up inspiring some Kyles to get out there with their Monster energy drinks in tow, the Area 51 memes have been flowing. It's still ridiculous to think about people showing up for the event, and going so far as to mix it up with military officials so that they could try and "break into Area 51." Twitter users are cracking all kinds of funny jokes about the crazy shit one could find in the notoriously eerie Area 51.
In what feels like perfect timing with yesterday's Storm Area 51 event, the US Navy just confirmed that several clips of unidentified flying objects that were released between December 2017 and March 2018 might actually be alien spacecraft. Well, to be fair authorities haven't confirmed or denied exactly what these UFOs are because no one knows exactly, but we're still one step closer to confirming the existence of other intelligent life out there, and that's pretty damn cool!
It's a big day for memers who have been eagerly awaiting the 'Storm Area 51' raid, and one enterprising man has already become a celebrity through his meme-y antics. As a news correspondent explained the raid from Nevada, our hero video-bombs the broadcast by doing an epic Naruto run. The move was one of the many proposed methods of invasion in the original Facebook event. All we need to see now is a group of Kyles chugging Monster with some aliens.
After all the hype and the buildup, "Storm Area 51" is here. People actually showed up. Not only that, but we've got Kyles out there already photobombing live news broadcasts with legendary "Naruto Runs." So, with an event of such amazingly ridiculous proportions, we had to round up some of our favorite tweets from the madness.
We can't believe it - "Storm Area 51" is finally here. What started out as an extremely stupid internet joke seems to be turning out somewhat serious.
And in case you're thinking that absolutely nothing is going to happen, as of yesterday people from all over the world have gathered in neighboring Nevada towns Rachel and Hiko to set up camp.
But unfortunately for all the excited Naruto runners and Kyles out there, the US government has ramped up its security and plans to arrest and fine trespassers $1,000.
Regardless of what actually happens, we're fricken stoked to see the memes that come out of this whole ridiculous thing.
Those viral videos of strange and unexplained aircraft that were going around the web, have now been confirmed as real, by Joseph Gradisher, a spokesperson for the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare.
Um. So, there it is. There are strange aircraft flying around the world, that escape all logic and our understanding of the laws of physics, and a high ranking official from the Navy is confirming that none of us were supposed to see the footage in the first place.
Honestly, we never thought the day would come - The "Storm Area 51"event is scheduled for Friday, September 20th and the memes are ramping up again just in time. Will people actually show up to the event, or will it be a complete bust? We have no idea; we're just in it for the ridiculous memes.
