What if the biggest shopping day of the year was a blockbuster motion picture? This is a trailer I put together, using amateur footage from Black Friday sales across the country, found on Youtube. Originally, I wanted to use this footage for a documentary about the Black Friday phenomenon and how it has impacted our society, but that idea was put on the back burner. Personally, I think that it has gotten way out of hand, and it's ridiculous the lengths that some people will go to just to buy stuff. Even more, what happens during these sales should never, ever result in violence. The footage in this video comes from the following sources on Youtube, who gave me permission to use their footage when I was in the early stages of the documentary. Thanks to:

This was edited on Final Cut Pro X, and the trailer was written and narrated by me.
