The man in this video is Reverend Billy from the Church of Stop Shopping.
As you might guess, he doesn’t approve of Black Friday.
This clip might be a couple years old, but you get the point. In a country where holiday spending exceeds $400 billion every year, it’s no wonder nuts like Reverend Billy exist. Sure the man seems a tad bit insane, but he does have a point. No doubt, he too is cashing in on America’s financial crisis with his Church of Stop Shopping.
As a retail store employee, I can say that this Black Friday was just as busy as it’s ever been. Products like the Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii and the Elmo Extreme may be ‘the devil,’ but they are still being bought. Compulsive shoppers, or Oniomaniacs as they are called by doctors, are plentiful in this land of plenty.
