Lil Nas X joins the Area 51 raid. Sort of.

What began as a joke Facebook post about citizens storming Area 51 in Nevada (“Show us them aliens!”) has turned into a scary sort of phenomenon with 1.5 million people promising to take part. That number won’t turn up, but you just know that enough idiots will show to make things weird on September 20.

Since it seems that everything has to be expressed as an “Old Town Road” meme these days, a new animated video has appeared featuring Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug, and Mason Ramsey tracing their route through Groom Lake.

Maybe after this they’ll show up for real in September.
