Black Friday is a tough day for all involved, from the folks who wait outside for bargains to the employees inside who face frantic consumers rushing after those great deals.
But perhaps the day after Thanksgiving this year was a little easier for some Target employees, thanks to one manager who got up on a checkout counter and delivered what had to be the most rousing pre-Black Friday speech ever.
"They come here with bargains in their heads, and fire in their eyes!" the man the YouTube notes
refer to as Scot exhorted his unseen employees in a video on YouTube that's starting to go viral. "We're more than just a store: This is a team! This is a family! This is Target!"
Gerard Butler, who declared something similar ("This is Sparta!
") in "300" would be proud. And Alex, the Target employee who garnered millions of Twitter followers after his swoony photo was posted on the Internet in November (and who may have been a marketing ploy
), may have some competition.
