He went from being Alex who works at Target to being the heartthrob Target Team Member whose photo went viral after a lust-crazed teen noticed how hot Alex was and snuck a shot of him while he bagged her items. Alex is thoroughly confused by this new-found fame and attention. Ellen interviewed him about being #AlexfromTarget.

Just so you know, you're not missing the point. Everyone is. And isn't. This is just a cute guy who works at Target. Teen girls were all over this. Alex (@acl163 on Twitter) gained over 300,000 in under 24 hours after this photo was tweeted out by a teen girl. The thing is: The girl found the photo on Tumblr - she wasn't a customer. This means Alex caught someone else's attention first. Either way, he's the attention of pretty much every teen girl... and Google.

And Target.
