What seemed as only a light-hearted prank on Twitter quickly turned into a viral tweet as one user generated a behavior for Walmart customers to get the most out of their Black Friday shopping.
You’re possibly wondering why anyone would need a vest from Walmart, but his reasoning was for shoppers to use it to bypass the long Black Friday indications.
“You can even walk in, grab what the hell are you miss, and wa l k out, ” he wrote.
Although the original tweet was exclusively intended as a pun, several people hopped on the inappropriate and thieving bandwagon and moved him direct letter solicits in an attempt to buy the actual vest( Tone: Mashable does not condone nor advocate this ). The tweet itself received during 20,000 retweets and 60,000 likes.
The tweet continued to catch on, motivating other various consumers to sell their uniforms from gigantic companies such as Best Buy, Target, and of course, Walmart.

Some have even re-used the original upright to dump to extreme Black Friday buyers.
Twitter user and Walmart employee, Emily Gould( @emg_emily) stated in a tweet that the company apparently caught on to the situation and acted pretty fast:
While we agree that pipelines may be be long and Black Friday patronize can be a dismay, we don’t suggest “youre using” this method. Relax parties, your Samsung Galaxies and LG TVs can wait.
