The Mayor of Flavortown is gearing up for a close encounter of the food kind.
Guy Fieri announced on Twitter Wednesday that he’ll be taking part in the viral Facebook event “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” — and he’s bringing BBQ.
“Workin’ on some new recipes for the folks inside Area 51,” Food Nework personality tweeted with an alien emoji, “The Radioactive Ribs are lookin’ goooooood.”
“Can we have some?” responded the official account for Butterfinger, with a photo of a Butterfinger-colored alien.
Over 1.5 million people are current RSVP’d to the ironic “raid” on the top secret military base. They intend to “see them aliens,” the event invite reads.
Although organizers later clarified it was joke — hosted by a group called,”S–tposting cause I’m in shambles” — the planned alien attack generated a very real response from the US Air Force.
“[Area 51] is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” USAF spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told the Washington Post. “The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”
Fieri isn’t the only celebrity to hype “Storm Area 51.” Singers Lizzo and Lil Nas X have weighed in, too.
It is unclear if he will be operating exclusively in a chef capacity during the raid, or also enforcing the laws of the culinary justice system on any found alien cuisine.
