The raid on Area 51 has been inspiring hot takes and even hotter memesall summer long, and at long last, the day is finally here! Although the event's original organizers pulled out and threw their own music festival in Las Vegas instead, there were still plenty of people willing to show up at the gates of Area 51:
As of now, there hasn't actually been much storming of the gates, though there was a sighting of some random Kyle practicing his best Naruto run in the background of a live newscast from the event.
Naturally, Area 51 is all over Twitter's trending feeds today and here are some of the best tweets featuring the #StormArea51:
