Earlier this month, a facebook event called 'Storm Area 51' went viral on Facebook. The event currently shows 1.4million going and 1.1million interested and is asking people to meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction, in hope to storm the area and hopefully come face to face with aliens.

Since then it has sparked a number of meme related events worldwide including some other NZ meme related events titled 'Storm Palmerston North' and 'Storm Paddy Gower'.

Even Lil Nas X has gotten on board the Storm Area 51 trend by dropping an animated video of his track Old Town Road showing him raiding the area and has a number of gems within it including appearances of Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet as well as the Walmart Yodeling Kid and John Wick star Keanu Reeves doing his best Naruto run through the Nevada based facility.
