Hands down, the greatest unofficial, but pretty much official tradition of the holiday season is the Black Friday stampede videos. Usually the local news will be rolling 2-3 fresh ones before puck drops for the Bruins matinee. It generally culminates with Walmart Corporate headquarters issuing a press release along the lines of…. “We regret blah, blah, blah….trampled….blah, blah, blah…$50 Vizio LCD….blah, blah, blah…revising store procedures…blah, blah blah….thoughts and prayers….blah, blah, blah. It’s wonderful. I can’t get enough of it.
PS- every time someone asks me to sign a petition to raise minimum wage, I think of these videos…and sign obviously because that will lend itself to an increase in the amount of trample videos for next year.
Editors Note: Talk about synergy, didn’t even get to talk to Mark this morning, but we both woke up an knew what this day was all about…trample videos.
