Have you heard of 'Alex from Target'? A photo of this teenager at work goes global in hours

The Internet can be a strange place.

On the one hand, major corporations spend millions to try to make their brands and products go "viral," that is, spontaneously spread from person to person through social media and the like.

And then there's Alex.

Last week, Alex was at his after-school job, bagging groceries at a Target store.

So far so good, right?

Then a Twitter user, @brooklynjreiff , snapped a photo of young Alex, and posted it to the popular social media site on October 26.

This simple tweet from @brooklynjreiff is just to alert @alannapage12 to Alex.
