This is what happens on a Sunday afternoon when millions of teens have nothing else to do but hang out on Twitter.
A Twitter user by the name of @auscalem posted a photo of a guy named Alex working at Target.
The high-schooler in question happens to be Alex Christopher LaBoeuf, who was photographed working at a Target store in Frisco, Texas, according to the Daily Mail.
Alex’s sweet face quickly caught the attention of scores of teenage girls around the world who turned him into #AlexFromTarget and a viral sensation over the last 48 hours.
What, you haven’t seen the scads of Alex From Target memes?
People are doing impressions of him on Vine. Fashionistas are sharing “Steal his Look” thoughts: “ALEX FROM TARGET shirt: $29.99 Target pants: $35.99 Target watch: $19.99 Target bags: $0.05 Target.”
Alex himself was taken aback by the attention.
“Am i famous now?” he tweeted Sunday afternoon, followed by this just two hours later: “Now i have to change my number...”
On Monday, Target (wisely) embraced the attention by tweeting out: “We heart Alex, too!”
One person who is watching the fuss rather cautiously: Alex’s girlfriend, Lindsey Diers
She’s been congratulated by strangers for having such a famous boyfriend, but has also received death threats from other girls.
“This is kinda scaring me now,” she tweeted.
