(WMBF) – A man dressed in a 12-foot-long CVS receipt costume visited a CVS store to purchase some Halloween candy, much to the amusement of other shoppers and employees.
YouTuber Jeremy Schneider posted video of the shopping trip, showing shoppers and employees alike giggling at the costume. When he went to check out, he made sure to point out the $1 in CVS Bucks on his costume. The clerk scans the giant barcode, and loses it when it actually works.
The clerk offers him a plastic bag for his candy, but he says he brought his own, because of course a 12-foot-long receipt is concerned about his carbon footprint.
Schneider said in a comment thread on Reddit that he scanned the "super long" receipt from his purchase of a box of mints, then enlarged it and printed it out onto 42 individual 8.5x11 sheets.
CVS President Helena Foulkes appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in May to announce the pharmacy chain would give their customers the option to opt-out of the infamously long paper receipts and instead receive digital receipts and coupons. Long receipts, such as those printed at CVS, were a common target of Kimmel's lampoonery.
