Woman Shopping At Target With Her Kids Shocked To Hear Porn Playing Over Store PA System

When you hear heavy breathing and moaning over the PA system at the store, either an employee is really excited to announce there’s a sale on dishwasher detergent or someone is playing porn for everyone to hear. One woman experienced the latter in a California Target on Wednesday, capturing the unmistakable sounds of professional coitus airing loud and clear over the store’s intercom.

The woman posted a video of the experience on YouTube and Facebook [warning: language NSFW], writing that she was shopping with her young twin sons when she realized her ears were hearing something they shouldn’t — audio from a porn started playing.

“What is going on at Target right now?” the woman asks in the video, as a female actress’ voice sighs “Oooh, yeah…” as well as what the shopper calls “very explicit foul language.”

She writes that the noises went on for about five minutes, while the store’s workers generally freaked out.

“The employees ran all around the store picking up and hanging up the stores phones,” she writes in the video’s description. That worked — for about two minutes, and then the noises started up again.

She wasn’t the only shopper who noticed.

“People threw their things down and walked out, others yelled at Target employees, some laughed, others were disgusted,” she says, adding that parents were offering to help her cover her twins’ ears for her while she rushed to check out.

All told, the porn was playing for at least 15 minutes before she left, though as she was walking out she could still hear it.

“I can never look at Target the same again,” she writes.

A Target spokeswoman tells Consumerist the company is looking into the incident.

“We are actively reviewing the situation with the team to better understand what happened and to help ensure this doesn’t happen again,” she said. “Because this is an active investigation, I’m unable to share additional details, but we want our guests to know that we take this very seriously.”
