The visual draws inspiration from the now-viral Storm Area 51 Facebook event, which has garnered over 1.3 million pledges of participation. Animated by SomehoodLum, the video shows Lil Nas X leading the raid alongside guest artists Young Thug, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Mason Ramsey.
The video is packed with meme references and celebrity cameos, including appearances by journalist Anthony Fantano, Keanu Reeves running Naruto style, a Thanos-headed pigeon, and the Infinity gauntlet. There's also a quick nod to Lil Nas X's "Panini" single.

The Storm Area 51 event has blown up in the last several days and has resulted in a slew of memes. Lil Nas X got in on the action with a couple of viral tweets.
The Facebook event is calling on people from around the world to collectively ambush Area 51 on Sept. 20. Though the description makes it clear that the event is a joke, the military has since released a statement urging everyone to think twice before they participate.
"[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,"Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told the Washington Post. "The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets."
