The Memes are stong with this one!
Why is the internet all of a sudden going crazy over Area 51
The answer lies on Facebook, with an event called "Storm Area 5, They can't stop all of us" With almost 1.5 Million people "Attending" The event, and most of the accommodation booked out in the surrounding area's. Some people are talking this parody event a little to seriously.
With a tonne of spin off events like "Post Area 51 Raid kick ons" and "Dress as Men in Black agents to defend against Area 51 Raid", Memes all over the Internet. Plus a heap of Celebrities also getting on board, it's near impossible to not get caught up in the hype.
