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.

Watch the fans bumrush the festival gates in the video below.

Numerous people have spoken out in support of the sole person to not make it over the fence. Take a look below for some of their reactions.

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.
