Not everyone is brave/dumb enough to want to go to the Area 51 raid this fall. Some will be more content sitting at home and not getting shot at by the Air Force. And for those who plan to stay far away from the event yet want to still see what happens to those who decide to storm the top-secret facility, AREA15 has good news for you. The future Las Vegas entertainment complex has announced that they’ll be live-streaming the event for all to see:
“At AREA15, we are curious, too, about what’s going to happen on Sept. 20 at the storming of Area 51. We will live-stream the “event” onsite to watch what goes down. Of course, costumes and tin foil hats are required.”
The entire stunt seems funny until it sinks in that over a million Facebook users have already claimed that they’ll be attending the event. That’s not to mention the nearly one million more who are interested in joining.
In the past week alone, the page has led to more than 700,000 pledging their precipitation. That number is likely to continue to grow as the raid garners more and more popularity, too. If even ten percent of these folks actually show up, that’s still more than 100,000 people.
The movement has spiraled so much out of control that even the U.S. Air Force has felt the need to discourage anyone from actually following through with the plan. They clearly don’t think this is as funny as everyone else seems to. At this point, it seems inevitable that at least a few wackos will actually try to invade the site, which could lead to some harrowing results.
At the very least, it should be entertaining to those watching the live-stream from the comforts of their couch. No matter what happens, it’s bound to be better than the disastrous Area 51 movie that hit theaters a few years ago.
