Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' Remix Video Features Keanu Reeves Cosplaying Naruto

Ready or not, because a whole mess of people are getting ready to storm the gate of Area 51 to discover once and for all whether aliens are truly housed there. Long believed to be holding extraterrestrial secrets, the military installation will be having some visitors this year as thousands have vowed to storm the fences and see if the "truth is out there". To celebrate, Lil Nas X has released an animated remix video of his song, "Old Town Road" and he included a special guest star just for the occasion, Keanu Reeves.

Dressed in Naruto apparel, Keanu, along with the musicians who collaborated on this song, are seen storming the gates of Area 51 in this remixed video taking their popular song and placing it atop a video exploring the hilarious, mysterious installation. The surreal video also is chock full of aliens, military, horsemen, and even Thanos as a bird with the Infinity Gauntlet. If Area 51 is anywhere as weird as this animated music video, we'll certainly be in for something.

Keanu Reeves has been the talk of the town this year, having appeared in John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum and most recently, as a side character in the upcoming video game, Cyberpunk 2077. When told of the "storming of Area 51", Keanu Reeves cheerfully added that he'd add his name to the ranks of those who were looking to find answers within its walls. Other celebrities, such as Chuck Norris, have also noted that they'd like to be added to the number of people that will be storming the castle, as it were. Whether or not aliens will actually be found or if the barrage of truth finders will make it to their destination is yet to be seen, but we're sure we'll see quite a show later this year.


What did you think of this bizarre video from Lil Nas X that takes his popular Old Town Road song and gives it an Area 51 style? Do you think the barrage of people will be successful to knock open the gates?

Originally created by Masashi Kishimoto for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999, Naruto follows a young ninja, with a sealed demon within him, that wishes to become the leader of his home village. The series ran for 700 chapters overall, and was adapted into an anime series by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex that ran from 2002 to 2017. The series was popular enough to warrant a sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations which is set several years after the events of the original Naruto story and features the children of many of its key characters such as Naruto and Hinata.
