The customer captures the red target ball rolling outside

Every Target shopper is familiar with the large balls of cement that line the store’s entrance. Now, a viral TikTok shows shoppers an unfamiliar sight: one of Target’s iconic red balls rolling into the parking lot.

The video, posted by TikTok user Hannah (@electic.angel), begins with a large red ball rolling away from the Target entrance while the “Mission Impossible” theme plays.

After the ball rolls across the crosswalk and bounces slightly off a curb, a Target employee comes into view pushing a cart.

“Bro, there’s a worker. Why isn’t he doing anything?” a man behind the camera asks.

The camera then pans to two silver cars, an SUV and a sedan driving away from the ball. The TikToker implies that the driver of the SUV removed the ball from its seat by hitting it with his car.

“And she’s leaving. She will meet another one,” says the man filming.

The video has been viewed 2.7 million times since its release on December 12. In the comments, many viewers joked about how the employee had brushed aside the situation.

“The worker who looked real then looked away so quickly, like no, no, no, NOT today,” joked one viewer.

“The worker said, ‘Uhhh, I definitely didn’t see that, I didn’t see that.’ As he turns his head the other way,” joked a second.

“The clerk bowed his head ‘not my problem,'” wrote a third.

Other spectators stated that they took the ball with them.

“I would put that in my car, why not???” one said.

“I would have tried to find a way to get this in the back of my truck for my kids,” wrote another.

“Would take the ngl home,” echoed a third. “One of the best seats.”

Some users claiming to be Target employees shared their own experiences with the red balls rolling away.

“The same thing happened to my target, but the ball went into a famous shoe,” commented one person.

“This happened at my shop during a power outage and I watched our security guard wheel it in before the rain. iconic. I will never forget it,” said a second.

“We had a semi hot one of ours at the target I’m working on and it hit a team member’s car,” shared a third.

The Daily Dot contacted Hannah via TikTok comment and Target via email.
