A woman has made herself famous on TikTok after sharing a video of her bidding an emotional goodbye to her job.
The video starts with a colleague of Gail's filming her final sign off.
She says: "Attention Walmart, this is Gail Lewis. 10 year associate, Morris, Illinois, 8 4 4, signing out. Good night."
"I've been through a lot with them," she gushes.
"They've watched my back, I've watched theirs."
Tearing up, Gail insisted that it was a 'happy sad' because she has another job lined up.
Gail's video has since been viewed almost 25 million times as people took to the comments section to thank her for her 'service'.
"Thank you Gail Lewis for your front line duty," someone wrote.
"Gail Lewis is a national treasure. Thank you for your service and contributions Gail Lewis," added another.
A third went on: "GOD BLESS YOU GAIL LEWIS."
"Thank you Gail Lewis you truly changed the world," said another.
Others made light of the situation and acted as if they'd served in the army with Gail.
"I was dishonorably discharged from Walmart after a year. I agree it’s tough. Hang in there," they jested.
"God bless our veterans. Thank you for your service corporal," added another.
In light of the huge traction her video has created online, Gail has spoken to NBC Chicago about her newfound stardom.
"Words really can’t describe my gratitude. It almost feels like a dream. I would never guess that this would get this kind of attention," she told the publication.
Elsewhere, Walmart corporate, Carrie Moses, the Morris location's store manager, said that Gail will be 'greatly missed'.
"I am grateful to Gail for her service at the Morris, IL store, and she will be greatly missed," she said.
"I wish her all the best on her future opportunities."
In regards to her new role, Gail has not shared where she's off to next in the wake of the unprecedented attention her now-viral TikTok video has received.
However, she did confirm that she has since started her new job and told NBC Chicago that she so far 'loves' it.
