This past holiday season, millions of young fans found exciting video game adventures under their Christmas tree, but a 7-year-old girl in West Chester, Ohio found...well, something else. Young Mackenzie Blankenship opened up what was supposed to be a copy of Splatoon for Nintendo Wii U (which her mother had purchased from Target), but instead found a pornographic DVD titled "Sensual Seductions 2."

According to Krista Greider, the young girl's mother, the game was purchased one week before Christmas, and a Target store associate had to unlock a case for it to be purchased. Target claims the game came into the store sealed and was never unsealed, and they've told Greider that they'll "pass her concerns along."

"Obviously this isn't Target's fault. They didn't manufacture it but I feel they as a distributor they should take some responsibility to get to the bottom of it so this doesn't continue to happen.

"She cried a little bit I had to explain to her a little bit that Santa's elves don't make the video games. They actually get them from the real stores and it had to have been a mix-up that Santa didn't know about it.

"I'm not OK with getting a gift card. I want to know how it happened and make sure that it goes up the flagpole and that Nintendo is made aware of it. [Target] said they'd pass it along and somebody would get back to me and I haven't heard anything since." — Krista Greider

Greider was given a gift card and told that she'd hear back from Target, but thus far no one has gotten back to her with an explanation. How exactly this happened is still unclear.
