WHEN MICROSOFT BUYS TARGET…

So Alyssa, Sophie and I were out shopping the other day… and when I saw this I just had to take a picture. Glad I had my camera with me! Took a little while to explain the joke to Alyssa…

[update]
No, it’s not Photoshopped! Well I mean, obviously the text and watermarks are… but the photo itself wasn’t! Also the sign is fixed now.

    Is this the target in Bloomington Mn?

  15. Gehraz on November 22nd, 2008 1:45 am

    Our most failsome member has sent in the most win-some picture.

  16. Onishii on November 22nd, 2008 2:23 am

    Nice catch.

    Target got doom ring’d :o

    4/5.

  17. MexicanJuice on November 22nd, 2008 3:02 am

    Oh. My. ^%&ing. God. That’s, like, once in a lifetime, man.

  18. Nick Soapdish on November 22nd, 2008 4:12 am

    Target must have just got a shipment of a 360 new game.

  19. Trent on November 22nd, 2008 6:58 am

    I am pleased. Even stores selling 360s are affected by its suckage.

  20. G1drake on November 22nd, 2008 8:20 am

  23. oijp on November 22nd, 2008 1:14 pm

    Awesome…Wonder what happens to the people inside…?
    Also, dekuscrub…way to stretch the screen.

  24. Exploderizer on November 22nd, 2008 2:20 pm

    Dekuskrub is in your Halolz, destroyin’ your barriers!

  25. Pauld'Arbonne on November 22nd, 2008 2:55 pm

    You try to take a product off the shelf and it just stays “stuck.” Get it? :)

  26. Teradohn on November 22nd, 2008 3:19 pm

    Fail? Or win?

  27. DeathJam on November 22nd, 2008 4:10 pm

    This is made of LOL and Uberness

    @Teradohn It’s a winning fail, 5/5

  28. Twentay on November 22nd, 2008 4:11 pm

    Funny
    BUT
    I just got the red rings of death
    after buying Fable 2 and Fallout 3
    SO
    massive depression for me

  29. mark_zero_one on November 22nd, 2008 4:13 pm

    Not even Target could resist the RRoD

  30. luckydog on November 22nd, 2008 4:17 pm

    After all the times I’ve been to Target I have never thought of that, so it was brilliant on your part.
    Also, when you pick up an item it says that the disc needs to be cleaned and to reset. I really hate that error

  31. killercartoons on November 22nd, 2008 6:24 pm

    Wait, so he didn’t photosop that pic? The sign was really like that? Oh man is that bad/funny!

  32. ;.; on November 22nd, 2008 7:48 pm

    The day after I saw this picture I got the RROD =(…

  33. zinraidragon on November 22nd, 2008 6:52 pm

    Seeing this is a once in a lifetime thing! Whoa! 5/5

  34. Qviivgg on November 22nd, 2008 7:38 pm

    FIRST

  35. Shawn Handyside on November 22nd, 2008 9:16 pm

    I am cursing people! >__<

    Hopefully I won't get a (second) RRoD now…

  36. N2O on November 22nd, 2008 9:14 pm

    Oh wow.

  37. jykcor on November 23rd, 2008 4:42 pm

    omg awexome! o and send link is outta the top spot :)

  38. Hoshika-Pichu on November 23rd, 2008 9:58 pm

    Send Link is back on top, but this is win.

    Somebody’d better ship those guys a new store.

  39. Ryder on November 23rd, 2008 10:30 pm

    That's not shopped?

  40. X Intolerable X on November 24th, 2008 2:42 am

  44. Exploderizer on November 24th, 2008 2:11 pm

  48. KingofRetards on November 30th, 2008 4:15 am

    It will be about 6 weeks before that Target will open again, unless they find a giant blanket.

  49. KingofRetards on November 30th, 2008 4:16 am

    Wait…. this isn't photoshopped? OMFGZORZ! 9001/5

  50. _Int3r_ on December 3rd, 2008 5:24 am

    Oh god, target SP3. I think we might all die.

  51. Joshy206 on December 6th, 2008 11:27 am

    I figured it wasn't photoshopped, because the quadrants aren't in the correct places. This just makes it Funnier!

  52. Firefaux on December 8th, 2008 3:32 am

    OMG LAWL! THAT IS THE FUNNIEST THING EVER.

    XD RROD!

    The creator of the site is fail?

  60. Jermaine on February 14th, 2010 3:35 pm

    If you think about it Microsoft could turn Target into a behemoth if they buy it! Really LOL funny though.

  61. Not_anon on July 10th, 2010 1:19 pm

    FUCKING EPIC WIN

  62. AznKat on October 8th, 2010 9:18 pm
