The visual sees a sleeping guard – listening to “Old Town Road”, obvs – get a warning text from Lil Nas X before gathering nervous-looking guards to protect the gates. Despite having guns, the military are no match for the foursome (and a Naruto-running Keanu Reeves – “if we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets”) and they piss themselves, drop their guns, and somehow die by leaking green slime.
Panini in hand, Lil Nas X and his crew arrive in Area 51 and receive futuristic gifts from the aliens, including a gnarly robot horse. The group then ride into the sunset but don’t seem to rescue any aliens, which is arguably the whole point of the raid.
It’s so dumb that it’s practically perfect. Maybe once Area 51 has actually been stormed in September, the aliens will release their own remix. Watch this space.
