Black Friday Craziness

For anyone not familiar with the subject, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the US when many retailers open really early (e.g. 03:00a.m.) and (theoretically at least) offer amazingly great deals. It is considered the start of the Christmas holiday shopping season.

Many people camp outside stores, even weeks earlier, in order to be the first to enter and grab the item they've set their sights on. Reports of people getting trampled, fights among customers and total rampage in stores are not uncommon in the news on Black Friday.

The following video demonstrates this (bear in mind though that the footage is from previous years and not 2012):
