Black Friday is almost upon us, and many families will be preparing to head out to grab some bargains after Thanksgiving Day.
But as this video shows, if you want to grab the real cheap deals, not only do you have to get to the shops very early, you have to face a wall of people, and very long queues.
This video was taken on Black Friday 2006 in a Wal-Mart store by a guy who was either letting his other half do all the shopping, or had decided to document the day rather than fight the hordes.
I like shopping occasionally, but only for items such as TVs, stereos, DVDs etc. But I hate queues, and lots of people fighting for bargains, so Black Friday sounds like an absolute nightmare.
Good job then that I live in the UK, where we have neither Thanksgiving or Black Friday. I knew there was a reason we let you Americans have the land.
