Customers got a rude surprise at a Target in San Jose, California, Wednesday morning, when the soundtrack from a pornographic video unexpectedly began blaring over the loudspeakers.

"This happened today at Target in Campbell, CA. Porn blasting over the intercom throughout the store,” shopper Gina Young posted on her Facebook page. "People offered to help me cover my twins' ears. Others threw there stuff down and walked out. Employees were running around everywhere. Picking and hanging up phones, which worked....for about two minutes before it started up again.”

"People were screaming at employees, video taping, some laughing some disgusted," she continued. "It was terribly awkward."

According to Young, the audio briefly stopped when a manager apologized, but resumed shortly afterwards. It was on for over 15 minutes before anyone finally figured out how to turn it off.

You can also see a video of the incident, which Young shared on Facebook.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Target customers have had to hear people moaning in pleasure while they shop for inexpensive homewares. At a Target in San Luis Obispo, California, a similar situation occurred in July, and the store ended up being evacuated as the staff attempted to turn it off.

Given the serialized nature of these attacks, we have every reason to believe the Target porn vigilante will strike again. We suggest all Target shoppers start wearing earplugs as a precaution.
