Lil Nas X has thrown down the gauntlet and joined the legions of netizens threatening to storm Area 51, releasing a new animated video for his song, “Old Town Road.”
The now-overplayed song has been given new life with the video, in which Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus and others raid the facility, part of the combined Facebook “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” event.
The video shows the music team storming Area 51, and striking fear into the soldiers defending it. For some reason, the soldiers are British troops wielding SA80 bullpup rifles equipped with SUSAT optics.
In the end, the soldiers are killed and Lil Nas X gets to hang out with aliens.
When asked if he would participate in real life, Lil Nas X said he would not only do so, but would also perform for free.
Still, Air Force spokesperson Laura M. McAndrews told CBS News that trying to storm a military facility is”dangerous.”
“The Nevada Test and Training Range is an area where the Air Force tests and trains combat aircraft,” she said. “As a matter of practice, we do not discuss specific security measures, but any attempt to illegally access military installations or military training areas is dangerous.”
However, local hotel owners around Area 51 have seen a spike in reservations around the date of the event.
“They’re pretty serious,” local inn owner Caroline West said. “They’re coming. People are coming.”
