(Newser) – It took only eight seconds of footage for Forrest Hunter to become a viral sensation. Hardly the first customer to get acquainted with the Walmart intercom, Hunter wasn't interested in pranks when he went live over the speakers at a store in Lawrenceburg, Ky. He was just tired of waiting for help. "Customer needs assistance in sporting goods, please? I'm the customer," he says over the intercom in a video viewed 2.6 million times on Facebook since it was posted Friday. Hunter tells WKYT he didn't get in any trouble. "A guy walked up and asked if I needed any help. I said, 'How'd you know?' Then I bought my hunting license." (Read more Walmart stories.)
