Alex From Target?

A lot of you may have heard of Alex From Target. Whether you saw him on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, or all four, he definitely blew up. And fast. He went from a normal Target worker to being on Ellen overnight!



Alex Lee was a normal Target employee who worked at a Target store in Dallas, Texas, until Brooklyn Reiff posted a photo of him on Twitter that blew up because he is good looking. It goes to show how far looks can go, doesn’t it?


The most ironic part of the whole thing? Brooklyn has said in interviews that she doesn’t even find Alex to be particularly good looking. The original tweet got over 4,000 retweets, and it just went downhill from there!

People started putting Alex all over the Internet by reposting the photo on social media. Some even created hilarious parodies of the original picture and posting them all over the web as well.


Target’s Twitter has announced their support for Alex and dispelled rumors that his popularity online might have cost him his job.

What do you think of all of this? Look good and work at Target to get famous? Use social media to your advantage? Post a picture of a good looking guy to get them on Ellen?
