Target catches cleaner masturbating, Tweets get funny

By Duncan Wilson

It was the stuff the producers of Target's dreams are made of: Catching a worker allegedly performing a lewd act during the filming of their programme. Upon arrival in this country, I'd heard a fair few tales about Target being the "panty-sniffing cleaner catching show" - but I'd never seen the legend in action.

This morning, I would go so far as to say I've seen the legend... and beyond. More than I would ever have liked to see. But, thankfully, I am not alone. On Demand streams of the episode in question have rocketed this morning.

So what happened? TV3's Target asked a cleaner to remove a stain from a carpet; instead, said cleaner added a stain elsewhere.

The result? Lots of people simultaneously said "EUUUUW!", then took to Twitter to muse and opine about what they'd just witnessed on their TV screens.

Watch an amusing reaction to the notorious Target cleaner here.

"Let's not be too judgemental until we see what sort of job he's done on the carpets", smirked Mike McRoberts, while @yvettevy enquired "When are we going to find out what score this guy gets out of 10?".
