Bud Light will create a special edition Area 51 beer can, if they can get 51,000 retweets on Twitter.

The company announced on July 15 that they would not be sponsoring the Area 51 raid, but on Wednesday, they offered something else.

Bud Light shared a photo of a black and neon green special edition of the beer can. There is also a generic alien-shaped head with a crown.

On the beer can it also says, "We know of no space beer by any other life form which is brewed and aged to be more refreshing."

The company said if the tweet gets 51,000 retweets on Twitter, they will make the special edition beer cans.

All of this comes after a Facebook event, "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us," was posted. The event says the raid is planning to take place on Sept. 20 from 3 a.m.- 6 a.m.

In the details of the event, it says, "We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens."

As of Thursday, 1.6 million Facebook users said they were going.

Due to the event gaining traction, the U.S. Air Force has been made aware of the potential raid, and they are not too happy about the situation.

Officials are warning people to stay away from the base or they could get hurt.
