Justin Timberlake heads to St. Paul Target, leaves 5 signed vinyl albums

He's really enjoying the Minnesota way of life.

If you're reading this, it might be too late already (it is).

Ahead of his Super Bowl show, Justin Timberlake has been doing the most Minnesotan of things – a Target run.

Not just any Target, but the Super Target in the St. Paul Midway. Inside, he snuck back to the electronics department and signed five copies of his new album – "Man of the Woods" – and instructed shoppers to find the store's general manager and use the code word "aardvark."

A store operator told GoMN that the five vinyl copies were gone almost instantly. 

His 60-second video already had more than 160,000 views on Twitter alone when this story was published.
