VIDEO:Multiple Fights Break Out Among “Black Friday Zombies”; Grown Men Squabble Over Toy Car

As usual on Black Friday, chaos is the name of the game, as consumers are fighting each other for the best deals on electronics, video-games, books, toilet paper and what have you. And yes, I am talking here about the so-called Wal-Mart people.

This year’s zombie fest can be summed up with this clip depicting grown men fighting over a toy-car,  thus displaying the consumerist utter madness which has become the norm lately.

This clip defines perfectly what’s wrong with our consumer culture. There are other videos shot in malls all across America, including one depicting a woman throwing a shoe which hits a baby, or these ones showing brawls and fights.

The cherry on top is this: desperate consumers even bought fake Best Buy and Wal-Mart employee vest just to give them an edge over the rest of the flock, i.e. to allow them to skip the lines.

The thing is, Black Friday is more or less a scam built around the myth that consumers will get beaucop discounts this particular time of the year. But the truth is, this holiday period, retailers enjoy higher profit margins than the usual, as they artificially boost the prices of their merchandise in the months preceding Black Friday, so the BF discounts look good in comparison.

In other words, they jack up the prices and then pretend to knock them down. They put their old junk on sale that they can’t get rid of and then they announce a “sale” and every zombie-consumer goes out and fights to get their share of the goods they don’t need ; all because they think they are getting something for nothing.
