US shoppers go crazy for Black Friday gadget deals

Next time bring a helmet.

Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving. In the US this can mean two things – a day of recovering from binge eating and awkward family reunions, or an early trip to your local store to grab some huge discounts.

Well it looks like a lot of Americans chose to grab some bargains instead of Pepto Bismol, as around the country shoppers flocked to their local stores to pick up bargains on everything from mobiles phones to laptops to electric blankets. But of course rather than try and be civil as they cruised around stores hunting for the best bargains, most shoppers decided to floor it once in the store and grab whatever they could get their mitts on.

Take the video below for example, which shows some of the most ferocious shoppers I’ve ever seen stampeding through various Walmart stores to grab the best deals on mobile phones. Feel free to ignore most of the screaming, I’m sure it’s because someone found a killer deal on a BlackBerry or something.
