Unless you've been living under a moon rock for the past week, you've probably heard that over one million people have joined a Facebook group titled "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us." The plan? To form a "Naruto run," inspired by a Japanese manga,  and "storm" the top secret U.S. Air Force base that people seem to think is being used to store crashed alien spacecraft and live aliens.

On Friday the event had just 400,000 people marked as going, meaning the number of those attending has more than doubled over the weekend. That's despite warnings from the Air Force that people would definitely have a bad time if they attempted to enter the base.

″[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told the Washington Post. “The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

Thankfully, most people seem to realize that the whole thing is a joke and have no plans on actually storming Area 51. These clever people are more than happy enough to just embrace the meme on Twitter, and there's plenty of memes.

Others are clearly motivated to make it into Area 51 and meet some aliens.

Remember, if you get captured, don't tell them a thing.
