SAN JOSE, Calif. (Oct. 16, 2015) — What some Target shoppers thought was a Halloween prank turned out to be sounds from an apparent X-rated audio track being played over the store’s public address system.

Chris Minor told CNN affiliate KPIX that he captured the moans and groans from the apparent porn audio on cellphone video Wednesday at a Target in San Jose, California.

“I thought it may have been Halloween related, maybe an employee playing games, but this was rated-X material, which made me feel very uncomfortable,” Minor said.

His video shows baffled shoppers — including mothers with babies — with one woman saying “that’s terrible.”

“I felt violated, and my body said wait a minute, this ain’t right. So I was uneasy,” said Minor.

Minor told the affiliate that the Westgate Mall store apologized over the PA system, but then the sounds started up again.

KPIX received a statement from Target saying they are “actively reviewing the situation with the team to better understand what happened, and to help ensure this doesn’t happen again.”

A Target in San Luis Obispo, California, was briefly evacuated in July after a similar explicit audio incident.
