Ebola who? Let's talk about Alex From Target.
Over the weekend, this guy pictured above became the toast of "Teen Twitter," and the hashtag #alexfromtarget grew into legend. Of course, a song about this guy working for the Minnesota-based company -- at a store in Texas -- wasn't far behind. What follows is the song and some crabby hipsters' snap judgement in real time.
Tatiana: omg. why.
me: i give this song a C+.
Tatiana: haha. solid C. sharps and flats everywhere.
me: it has a couple moments.
Tatiana: but A for effort and fast lyric writing. she's no sia, but it's also about a kid that works at target.
me: "my parents can't get in my way."
Tatiana: if alex from target made my life complete, i would be so sad.
me: also i like that there's a YouTube comment pitting him against jake from state farm ads.
Tatiana: this girl needs to monetize. she's getting more pageviews now than she ever has. she could be making bank.
me: i bet if she got like dr luke or rick rubin to help, this would be a hit.
Tatiana: ew dr luke.
me: ok not dr luke.
Tatiana: this girl's already singing about alex from target -- she doesn't need more drama.
