The internet right now has been buzzing over to enter the restricted area in Nevada with the justification that if enough people turn up, there would not be sufficient guards to stop everyone to get in. The thrill around Storm Area 51 is real and the increasing number of people interested in it, is insane.

On June 27, Matty Roberts, from California, created a Facebook Page, inviting people to raid Area 51 in Nevada, which is a secret military base in the USA, but has many controversial theories associated with it. All he made was a joke for yet another viral meme trend. He did not realise that millions would rally behind his battle cry to “see them aliens” at the Air Force facility. As of now, “Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us,” Facebook page has about 1.6 million people have clicked, “Going,” and another 1.2 million indicating that they are “interested” to join the event. In the details of this event, Roberts suggested “if we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.”

“I waited for like three days and there were like 40 people and then it just completely took off out of nowhere,” Roberts was interviewed by CNN affiliate, KLAS-TV. “It was pretty wild,” he added. The Storm Area 51 Facebook event creator told the news portal that he was declining interviews as his creation was skyrocketing and he thought if the FBI shows up at his door. “I was just like, the FBI's going to show up at my house and it got a little spooky from there,” says Roberts.

He reportedly came up with the idea for the meme page after watching podcaster Joe Rogan interviewing Area 51 whistleblower Bob Lazar and American filmmaker Jeremy Corbell. In that interview, Corbell claimed he worked with an alien spacecraft while he was employed in one of Area 51 underground facility. Roberts thought it would be a "funny idea" for his meme page.

Roberts Storm Area 51 Facebook event went so viral that the U.S. Air Force had to step in. The officials warned the people to stay back home. They even reported that they would continue to “protect” the secret facility if anyone shows up at the scene.
