"Hi! This is why you don't buy an iPad from Walmart," a young man explains at the beginning of a YouTube video before turning the camera to his fellow Walmart associates, who are throwing — and occasionally dropping — some boxes.
"See? We like to throw s***," the man clarifies, while standing in the stockroom of a Walmart in Pikeville, Kentucky. "That's iPad number three we've thrown."
Those at Walmart's corporate offices were not amused by the antics. "We've seen the video of several nightshift associates destroying merchandise in the back of one of our stores in August and, as anyone can image, it made us wince," a Walmart spokesperson tells NBC News in response to inquiries about that clip. "We are also embarrassed." She adds that the "associates involved no longer work for Walmart."
At one point in the video, one of the men is seen throwing a box to ground. "Sorry about that, iPad," the person recording the video says. "Hope nobody buys that."
