Oh Target Canada, we barely knew ye.

Now that Target Canadas from from coast to coast to coast have closed, the ridiculousness of the whole situation is finally hitting Canadians. What was supposed to be the next great shopping experience in Canada, turned out to be nothing more than an extended pop-up store.

And while the great Target Canada discussion will no doubt fill the halls of Intro to Marketing classes in Canadian Universities for years to come, five of the chains 17,000 laid off employees are saying goodbye to their jobs in a way that’s more interesting than anything you could actually find in the store.  (Except Christmas decorations, Target Canada had the best Christmas decorations.)

The video was made by some employees in the final hours of their store. And according to the National Post, it was made without any practice, and with mostly improvised instruments. Better yet, lead singer Liam McDonald didn’t know the lyrics twenty minutes before he sang the song.  I mean, who doesn’t know the lyrics to Semisonic’s Closing Time?!

Goodbye Target Canada. It’s been…um…short.
