  • 9:22 I think an Area 51 guard would wear a suit, not looking like a worker.

  • This is an amazing idea for a video, just do a more recent meme

  • Oh my god

  • No we’re do you think we keep all are 7100 nukes in fucking Area 51 so they don’t want people to know so they try to pass it of as a training base and most of the us soldiers have not been in Area 51 so that means they probably keep a lot of there nukes in there. Facks

  • I wish people would have actually stormed area 51. Could thin the herd a little.

  • My favorite area is area 69

  • Um no.. they say they're is 9.. atleast that bob l guys says there is.. ive done a bunch of research and idk about that dude.. but not going to get into it here.. smosh is not the place for that..

  • Dead meme academy

  • Smosh is cringe

  • 8:35 Hey Look It’s Plainrock124

  • Okay, for those who's wondering what's inside Area 51, inside Area 51 is Dead SCP Creatures yes they're real but they're extinct and no they don't have aliens inside, whoever gets inside Area 51 will be shot by the military. And aliens don't exist. Hopefully, nobody is sure if Aliens are real since there are no sightings of them, or events of them invading Earth.

  • I just got more knowledge than me doing online school.
