Lil Nas X Debuts New Music Video, Depicts An Area 51 Raid

The whole gang in the new Old Town Road remix saddle up and storm Area 51 in a new, animated music video

Yeeeaaah I’m gonna take my horse to the 51, I’m gonna – riiide until those guards gon’ shoot!

We’ve all seen the memes. The Facebook event simply titled “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” has reached 2.5 million backers, with over a million users saying they are “interested”.

The U.S Air Force has already issued a public statement highly discouraging people to NOT attend this event, even though most considered it a joke.

Nonetheless, that isn’t stopping the internet from making countless jokes about it, including the Old Town Road star, Lil Nas X.

On July 12th, Lil Nas X, and friends came out with yet another version of the hit song ‘Old Town Road’ with Billy Ray Cyrus (the man in the original remix), Young Thug, and the Walmart Yodel Boy – Mason Ramsey.

Yesterday, July 16th, a music video was published for the song, and it shows the whole crew storming Area 51 and discovering aliens and all kinds of cool gadgets.

The video features the head of Thanos on a bird, a disassembled Infinity Gauntlet from Avengers: Infinity War, and a cameo from celebrities including Anthony Fantano (a music review YouTube channel), and star actor Keanu Reeves.

Many people have poked fun at the video, commending the rapper for rooting social media in his latest antics, but others say that the video only further encourages individuals to go through with the plan to breech the government facility.

Regardless, this is a hilarious video. But don’t storm Area 51 when you’re done watching.
