A video has been circulating of dozens of people rushing the gates of the event to force their way in for free.
Photographer Jeremy Cohen, who’s shooting the event, caught the phenomenon on video.
In a Twitter DM to Mashable, he said he saw the mob “casually walk down the street.”
“When they saw a spot with not many cops around, they stormed the gate all at once,” Cohen said. “It was def planned … [It] was very strategic.”
Only one person was caught who had a prosthetic leg.

The kid technically didn’t commit a crime at that point.

Some are joking that this is simply a test run for the ridiculous push for people to rush the gates of Area 51.
Whatever way these people decided to organize to make something like this happen, it clearly worked.
