If you’ve ever been to the Denver International Airport or even seen photos, you can probably tell it’s a bit, uh, creepy.

In case the giant blue mustang statue with devilishly red eyes that GLOW wasn’t enough to send chills down your spine, over the years a whole slew of terrifying and outlandish conspiracy theories surrounding the Colorado airport have popped up.

Now, as the airport undergoes (semi-mysterious) construction, it’s embracing all those cursed statue, questionable mural, and underground bunker theories and taking an opportunity to troll the heck out of travelers.

For its latest round of construction advertisements, the airport fully played into the long list of far-from-comforting rumors and created signs to specifically addressed them.

“Yes, Den’s got some secrets,” one of the ads featuring an image of an alien reads. “Since the airport’s opening in 1995, there have been endless rumors and theories. People say our underground tunnels lead to secret meeting facilities for the world’s elite. Our blue horse is thought of to be cursed. Some believe we are connected to the new world order, the Freemasons, and are home to the lizard people.”

In addition to the alien ad, the airport’s official Twitter account shared two others. One reads, “What’s happening behind this wall? Gargoyle breeding grounds. A top secret meeting. An improved airport experience.”

Another, which features an image of a gargoyle in a metal detector, says, “Streamlined security? Or more secrets?”

Airport visitors have noticed the next level trolling efforts, and one even shared a few more construction signs that reference lizard people, the evil horse, and even the Illuminati. Everything’s fine!

“I think that we recognize that conspiracy theories are part of our brand. It’s a fun way that we can engage with our passengers,” Emily Williams, a spokesperson for the airport told The Denver Post.

The airport has definitely shown a sense of humor in the past, and even made jokes on Twitter about painting that creepy horse statue back in 2016.

So until the conspiracy theories are put to rest it looks like Denver International Airport is really keeping up the effort to stick it to the skeptics.
