Inspired by the recent social media phenomenon, other people have started setting up their own 'storm' events.
Keen to ride the momentum of Matty Roberts' wildly successful (yet squarely tongue-in-cheek) campaign to see thousands of people storm the Area 51 facility in Nevada, Facebook user Anthony Carnovale has launched his own effort to solve another of the world's most enduring mysteries.
Entitled "Storm The Bermuda Triangle, It Can't Swallow All Of Us", the new endeavour seeks to send as many people in to the infamous 270,000-square-mile stretch of ocean as possible.
Carnovale has even set up a fundraiser to book live music performances for the event.
"I'm legit trying to throw a party for everyone so they'll come to my thing," he wrote. "This is the time for assembly to show this country we can organize. Let's go have a good time."
"Let's still clap these sea monster cheeks. Ok. Let's all just have fun."
The event is just one of several dozen to have cropped up in the wake of the success of the original 'Storm Area 51' campaign with others targeting everywhere from SeaWorld to the White House.
As things stand, a whopping 2.5 million have signed up to go to Area 51 on September 20th.
Exactly how many people will actually turn up on the day however remains unclear.
