Great vdeo of a "typical" WalMart black friday sal

Postby badchedda » Sat Nov 27, 2010 6:39 pm

Dude shot this video at 11:00pm, an hour before the sale allegedly even began. Like many of us know, at that time of day, WalMart consists of hundreds of customers standing around with full carts waiting until 12:00pm to check out.

If you've never seen this, or if you go to a WalMart where things actually don't start until midnight, you may find this video interesting.

:shock:

I am completely flabbergasted....not because of the line....but because you can actually MOVE IN THERE....unreal. Our store is a "follow the rules" store and everyone who has a cart is moving at once, so basically it's just one giant traffic jam. There is no inbetween space between people/carts. Maybe cuz it's 11 in this video? I don't know...but ours seems way busier than that...a lot more people.....and you can't move around as well as these people seem to be able to....

I will have to remember next year to get my camera out on my phone I guess....

Luckily this year we were to the checkouts before anyone else was up there....so we didn't have to wait in line...but if you are in that store more than 10 minutes after unwrapping you will be waiting for the next hour in line ....at least.

I'm pretty certain that it is! All the colors and shapes seem to line up the same between the one on the screen and my t-shirt. Now, we just need to figure out who it is :wink:

Absolutely...I NEVER get a cart at Wal-Mart on BF. If I can't carry it (or bag it), it's not worth the aggravation. I use an awesomely huge, yet lightweight tote bag. Maneuverability is never a problem.

And I've got to agree that looks like a BFADS 2010 t-shirt. Good eyes!

It may be before sale starts but I would say there are alot of sale items in those baskets. At my walmart I got there at 9:55 and most of sale stuff was already gone.
And I agree with that being a bfads shirt.

One more thing, I want to go to that store next bf, so much better than mine

WOW :shock: I need to shop at that Walmart. It's so empty... That guy in the yellow would have been clipped by my elbow if he cut like that in front of me. :twisted:

I don't know, it just caught my eye. Then of course I had to try and pause it and rewind it 15 times to make sure I wasn't crazy.
