Black Friday 2011: A soul-crushing compilation of humanity at its worst

It's Black Friday in America. When flat-screen TV's at deep discounts cause annual madness. It's like that scene in 28 Days Later, when a cluster of people become infected with rage and turn on one another like mindless flesh-craving monsters.

Here's a compilation of videos from today, Black Friday 2011.

5. Xbox CrushLocation:

A Walmart in Falcon, Colorado

Notably Sad Event:

A crowd of shoppers around Xbox video games get told to "STOP PUSHING! BACK UP, BACK UP, BACK UP!" while it appears people get forcibly pushed back. It's just a video game, everyone.

4. The Texas TrampleLocation:

A Walmart in

Mesquite, TexasNotably Sad Events:

A woman almost being trampled, another woman crying and a man yelling "GET THE FUCK UP!" over the chaos.

3. A Child's Call to ReasonLocation:

A Walmart in Kansas City, Missouri

Notably Sad Events:

Chilren shrieking, adults yelling, what appears to be a box that once held video games being hoisted into the air like a trash can during a riot, and what sounds like a child, telling no one in particular, "Guys, geez!"

The worst two are on Page 2.

2. TACKLED!Location:


Notably Sad Event:

The utter joy, usually reserved for the birth of a child or World Series win, over what appears to be a toy. This video isn't so directly negative, and who's to say this mother -- who apparently tackles her friend -- isn't getting a gift for her child who's been good all year? Really, it's just getting included for the soft tackle she applies to her friend.

1. The Computer Will Break In a Year AnywayLocation:

A Walmart in America.

Notably Sad Events:

People vying for shitty computers.
