What’s more sinister than FEMA death camps? Some black tarps and a chain-link fence.

Just in time for the Wednesday kickoff of “Jade Helm 15,” a YouTube user under the handle Get Right America posted an amazing parody of the breathless, Humvee-tracking conspiracy theorists who are suspicious of the U.S. military training exercise.

The videographer filmed himself driving around the parking lot of a Sam’s Club in San Angelo, Texas in a nod to one of the wilder “Jade Helm 15” conspiracy theories about its parent company, Wal-Mart. There, he found a potential hiding spot for “ninjas that can take our guns” and trucks that obviously must belong to the Knights Templar.
