Ah, Black Friday, the so-called "shopping holiday" American's love to hate. It wouldn't be complete without someone filming an insane shopping riot on their iPhone and posting it on the internet. So without further ado, we present to you this year's viral Black Friday video.
It was uploaded to YouTube early this morning and has already been picked up by the UK's Telegraph, among other sites. Captioned "Fighting Over Phones During Wal-Mart Black Friday 2012 & More!," it appears to show two separate scenes of people screaming, shoving, and trampling each other to get to a giant bin of smart phones, though we could find no verification of where and when the video was shot. That aside, it delivers the requisite does of incivility that we've come to expect from the day. Enjoy.
