Do aliens like beer? Bud Light is counting on it.
A tweet from the Bud Light Twitter account Monday read that the company wants to stay out of the proposed, fictitious raid plan of Area 51 going around social media.
The brand's stand against the raid didn't last long.
Bud Light tweeted Wednesday afternoon that they are offering free Bud Light to any alien that escapes from Area 51.
Later that day they shared a picture of a new, special edition "Bud Light Space Beer" can and a message of "We Come In Peace."
Across the top of the can reads a unique message saying:
A Twitter user responded to the new graphic of the Area 51-themed can asking if it was "real." Bud Light responded with "51,000 RTs and we'll make it happen." The brand's account also changed its avatar photo to an alien logo.
