As you have probably see, the huge Facebook event ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’ recently went extremely viral, with even celebrities getting involbed.
There are two million people who are thinking of heading to Nevada to discover what’s really there and say hello to all the UFOs that the American government allegedly hides from everyone.
Bud Light really believe aliens are in Area 51 and have got themselves involved in the Area 51 talks across the internet, stating:
The alien I snuck out of Area 51 telling me they just ate the entire 30 pack of Bud Light out of the fridge. pic.twitter.com/Z1Y92cOUkL

“The alien I snuck out of Area 51 telling me they just ate the entire 30 pack of Bud Light out of the fridge.”
Of course, just a few days later, the brand tweeted to confirm that they didn’t support the Facebook event:
We’d like to be the first brand to formally announce that we will not be sponsoring the Area 51 raid.

“We’d like to be the first brand to formally announce that we will not be sponsoring the Area 51 raid.”
This soon changed, as their social media manager followed up with a completely different statement:
Screw it. Free Bud Light to any alien that makes it out. https://t.co/AOWOYL3Oyp

“Screw it. Free Bud Light to any alien that makes it out.”
Since that tweet, they’ve rebranded their cans and changed their Twitter profile picture to match the new can, meaning they are very serious about welcoming the aliens with some fresh beer.
The green and black “space beer” can reads “we come in peace.”
The rest reads:
“Greetings Earthlings. This is the famous Area 51. We know of no space beer by any other life form which is brewed and aged to be more refreshing. Our cryogenic ageing produces a light bodied space lager with a fresh taste, a crisp, clean finish, and a smooth drinkability. Take us to your leader … for drinks.”
Bud light tweeted that they will roll the cans out but only after they garner 51,000 retweets.
The “space beer” can is only halfway there with 26,000 retweets at this moment.. we hope it happens!
