(Newser) – Shoppers at a Target store in California say they had to cover their children's ears when an X-rated soundtrack suddenly starting blasting out of the store's audio system Wednesday morning. Shoppers at the San Jose outlet say it sounded like the soundtrack to a porn film starring two women. "I thought it was just a prank at first, but it didn't stop; it just kept going," a mom tells the San Jose Mercury News. "I heard female voices making sexual noises and telling each other 'Do this' and 'Do that.' My son asked me, 'Why are they hurting the ladies?' And I said, 'Don't worry, it's OK.'" She says the recording lasted at least 15 minutes and employees just stood around laughing.

A woman who was shopping with her twin babies tells KFOR that workers tried to stop the recording, which she says caused pandemonium. "Employees were running around everywhere, picking and hanging up phones, which worked for about two minutes, before it started up again," she says. "People were screaming at employees, videotaping, some laughing, some disgusted. It was terribly awkward." Target says it is "actively reviewing" the situation to make sure it doesn't happen again, reports the Mercury News, which notes that the exact same thing happened in July at a Target nearly 200 miles away in San Luis Obispo. (A Facebook user pranked Target customers outraged by the removal of gender-specific signs in toy departments.)
