A Facebook event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” has amassed an army of memers, schemers and tinfoil hat-wearing conspirators to raid the top-secret Air Force military base in the middle of Nevada’s desert.

Over 289,000 users confirmed they’re planning to come along, while 314,000 are “interested.” It’s gotten so big that the event is grabbing the attention of local and even international media.

Needless to say, the event itself is a joke, hosted by a Facebook group called “Shitposting cause im [sic] in shambles” made up of some 20,000 meme-loving netizens. The group classifies itself as a “religious organization” on the platform.
