It’s amazing the power of the Internet. Alex seems to be a normal guy working retail at Target, until a young presumably teenage girl snaps a photo of him and uploads it to various social media sites and all of sudden overnight #AlexFromTarget is celebrity. I think it may be because he is a decent looking young man, but no matter what the case #AlexFromTarget began trending on Twitter and he gained about 250,000 followers in a matter of days. Why should you care? Because that is the power of the Internet….anyone can become famous for literally anything. So…many….memes.

You can be one of his hundreds of thousands of followers on Twitter @acl163.
