    National crazy day for americans. Me, me, me, consume, consume, consume, must have, should have, will have!
    When you dig further into it, you will see that the "reduction" isnt really a reduction of price but the price who went back to normal again after being tampered with during the whole year. Up, down, up, down (now you dont know the right price... so.. BLACK FRIDAY "sales" HAHA)

    What is this trash man. This channel is plummeting into irrelevancy. Did you even bother to watch the video back after you "edited" it? Doubles on the text in separate fonts. Shitty pacing. Dude come on...

    The cake-est job in retail on Black Friday is car sales (zero customers) and when I worked in Paint at Lowe's. I *maybe* made three gallons of paint that day.
