Target Believes Porn That Played Over California Store’s PA System Come From An Outside Source

A few weeks ago, shoppers at a California Target received an unsettling surprise when the unmistakable sounds of professional coitus aired loud and clear over the store’s PA system. While an investigation into the incident continues, the retailer believes the pornographic audio originated from an outside source. 

The Minnesota-based company has so far determined that no employees were involved in the disturbing broadcast, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

A spokesperson for Target says that “there is absolutely no indication that any team members were involved” in the incident and that the company now believes the recording didn’t originate inside the store.

Although it’s still unclear just how someone infiltrated the store’s PA system in order for the raunchy recording to be heard.

“We’ve taken steps to prevent it from happening again,” the spokesperson tells the Star Tribune, noting that the investigation continues into finding the source.

The Oct. 14 incident was caught on video – and posted on YouTube and Facebook [warning: language NSFW] – by a woman shopping with her young twin sons when she realized there was something coming out of the store’s speakers that shouldn’t have been.

“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.”

The shopper wrote that the noises went on for about five minutes, while the store’s workers ran around trying to stop the recording.

The Star Tribune reports that the October incident isn’t the first time the retailer has run into issues with explicit recordings playing over the PA system.

Back in July, the same issue occurred at a store about 185 miles away from the most recent location, while two other episodes allegedly happened in the state in April and September.
