When Target Closes Its Doors In Canada, These Employees Say A Special Goodbye
Apr 22, 2015
The video, which features the (now former) employees playing "Closing Time" by Semisonic, was apparently shot in a single take while other workers were still tearing down the store. The video went viral quickly and even reached Jacob Slichter, the actual drummer from Semisonic. When reached for comment, Slichter said he found their cover to be "really powerful" and that he "really [hopes] these guys find jobs."
Last week, Target closed the doors to all 133 of its big-box locations in Canada, but, thankfully, not before six of its employees from Victoria, British Columbia were able to record a final goodbye that's hilarious and heartfelt at the same time.
