Target Canada employees bid farewell with "Closing Time" video

Group of employees create viral video during the retailer's final days

It was last call for Target Canada stores this week, and one group of employees decided to pay their respects in the form of a song.

On the last day for five Target Canada employees at a Victoria, B.C.-location, the group toyed with the idea of playing Semisonic's "Closing Time" over the store's P.A. system.

After discovering that one of the employee's had a guitar in his car, the idea morphed into this viral video which has since earned over 90,000 views on YouTube.

The impromptu band says goodbye to Target Canada while being pulled through an empty store on a flatbed dolly. The band is composed of a guitarist, a drum set made of a shopping basket and two plastic hanagers, and a hanger bar used as a faux-mic.
