Creator of the 'Raid Area 51' event shows off his 'Naruto Run' and we're all screwed
In case you haven't heard, on September 20, 2019, the US government is going to have its hands full. You see, on June 27 this year, a man called Matty Roberts set up a Facebook event as a joke, called, 'Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us'.
Along with the date and time, Roberts also included a short explanation of what exactly is going to go down when everybody converges, which read: "We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. [Let's] see them aliens."
It may have started as a joke, but less than a month later, the event has gone viral, with 1.8 million people saying they will attend, and another 1.3 million saying they're interested (as of this writing).
Since then Roberts has spoken out about his initial fears at his event's mass interest, telling KLAS-TV that he was "terrified" of what he had created, and that he was expecting the FBI to turn up to his house at any moment. (I reckon this is more of a job for the MIB, Matty.)
Roberts speaks out about his fears:
However, one part of the event that has left a few people confused is Matty's instruction to "naruto run". For those unaware, a "naruto run" is a reference to the style of running featured in the anime show, Naruto, where the characters run with their heads bent forward and their arms stretched behind. See image below:
So, I'm sure we can safely assume that Matty Roberts, the man who has brought hundreds of thousands of people together to raid one of the most secretive and secure facilities in the US, is an expert at the naruto run - to the point where I'm sure he will, indeed, be able to dodge bullets.
Well, no. Check out Robert's demonstration of his naruto run below, and prepare to change your RSVP to the biggest event of the year:
Yeah, we're all screwed.
But here's the thing, the obsession with Area 51 is so great that we have to expect that people will attend this event in the middle of the Nevada desert. With the mystery of aliens being embedded in our culture and the fact the CIA only publicly acknowledged the existence of the base for the first time in June 2013 - we have to believe the need for the "truth" is going to be so great, that people will actually attempt to storm the base.
Hence why the US military has issued a warning to anybody planning to storm the base.
