Black Friday 2012 – Shoppers Gone Crazy

This year, Black Friday was pushed to Thanksgiving night and Cyber Monday is a weeklong event for many stores. With even bigger sale promotions and more time to shop, customers literally fought for these doorbusters. Braving the insanity, I trekked out to examine what these extra 4 hours did to everyday, ‘normal’ shoppers. CAUTION: SOME CLIPS OF CRAZY SHOPPERS MAY CAUSE DISBELIEF. Personally, I get no gratification in purchasing a $20 dollar item half off, trying to get in line through the thousands of people, and then waiting another 3 hours to actually purchase it. But for some, this is an after-Thanksgiving-holiday-tradition that many could not picture themselves going without.
