There was just something about an eerie blast of lurid blue light in the sky that particularly fired the imaginations of New Yorkers and Twitter jokesters Thursday night.
Once city dwellers realized it wasn’t the end of the world, their excitement and quips headed for the stratosphere.
Dear Alien Overlords 👽,
We realize that the bright blue light over New York was an Astoria, Queens power plant explosion, but we’d like to formally request that you send the mothership to pick up Individual #1 anyway.
People of Earth 🌎#Bluelight

#IntoTheSpiderverse is so good that it literally came true just now with that freak “transformer” explosion that lit up Queens
