Well, it’s already here, the day we finally get to “see them aliens!”
The first Naruto runner at the Storm Area 51 event has been spotted running towards Area 51 during a live news reporting.
The Naruto runner appeared when KTNV news reporter, Joe Bartels, was reporting live from the small US town of Rachel to cover the final presentation for Alienstock, an alien-themed festivity planned to tie in with Area 51 raid.
Bartels described the scene:
“There are lots of campers and RVs because there are no hotel rooms in this isolated area.”
“But there are people, we’re told, coming in from around the world and especially across the country interested to see what happens after that viral idea to Storm Area 51 – that secret military base not far from here.”
“Authorities are expecting up to 30,000 people to show up during the course of this three-day music festival, which begins tonight.”
But just before Bartels signed off the news segment, explaining they would be returning later with more coverage, he was upstaged by a Naruto runner behind him.
The anonymous person ran past the camera in a hilarious reference to the original Storm Area 51 satirical description, which states, “If we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them, aliens.”
The coverage took the social media by storm, with one Twitter user tweeting:
“DID THAT MF JUST NARUTO RUN PAST THE REPORTER WHAT THE F*** IS THIS WORLD.”
Another user wrote:
“SOMEONE DID NARUTO RUN BEHIND THE REPORTER LMAO.”
A third person added:
“Who else is excited to see what happens with the Area 51 saga?? But this kid running past behind the reporter will definitely go down in history.”
Storm Area 51 event started as a joke on Facebook and quickly turned into a viral sensation. In the original invitation to the activity, Matty Roberts suggested that everybody do the “Naruto run” towards Area 51, a top-secret US Air Force base in Nevada.
The “Naruto run” has been inspired by an iconic Japanese anime character, Naruto Uzumaki. It entails running with your head down and your arms stretched behind you.
The original “Storm Area 51” event was scheduled to occur on September 20 at 3 am. But the American Air Force advised that any attempt to invade an “open training range” is a pretty bad idea.
As reported by The Independent, US Air Force spokesperson Laura McAndrews said:
“[Area 51] is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces.”
Area 51 is a highly classified and world-famous Air Force base in the US, located in southern Nevada.
For decades, paranormal enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists have been obsessed with this area. Alien autopsies are believed to have taken place in this secretive place, along with the study of alien spacecraft.
The US government has kept a tight seal to any information coming in and out of this facility. This just strengthens the conspiracies and allure.
To make “Storm Area 51” more vivid, the US Navy recently revealed that former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge’s UFO videos are real.
