Black Friday madness has once again descended, with video footage showing people viciously squabbling over TVs and other electronic goods, showcasing the very worst aspects of human nature.
If the clips below are anything to go by, the United Kingdom is now rivaling America for Black Friday insanity, with police being called out to numerous stores across the country to deal with fighting and other disturbances.
However, the U.S. was by no means immune to the chaos. The clip below shows people brawling over hi-fi systems at a store in Michigan City, Indiana.
Another clip shows police tasering a man in Walmart.
Another video currently going viral compares the relatively sanguine Black Friday of the 1980’s with today’s zombie-fest.
The video below splices clips taken from George A. Romero’s 1978 classic Dawn of the Dead with images of Black Friday. It’s hard to tell the difference. At least the zombies in Romero’s film moved a lot slower.
Meanwhile, the image below, taken at an Asda store in the UK, wouldn’t look out of place in any movie about the undead, just replace the flat screen TVs with brains.

Mark Dice’s annual trolling of Black Friday shoppers who shunned their families on Thanksgiving to line up outside stores was met with the usual blank stares commonly affiliated with lobotomy patients.
