Aggregation of 2012 Black Friday trample videos Nothing too egregious, but still entertaining.

Were the manager of a Best Buy on Black Friday, I'd have a grand plan:

A) push all the shelves/kiosks/display cases up against the walls, so there just a vast, open area
B) suspend all the reasonable size/weight merch 20-30 feet above the floor. High enough so everyone could see what it was and position themselves accordingly.
C) Start admitting customers. Each would be charged a hefty admittance fee (say $150 per person) which would entitle them to ownership of anything they were able to walk out with.
D) Each potential customer would also sign a waiver indemnifying me and Best Buy against any injuries they might suffer, and giving consent to being recording for commercial purposes.
E) Each potential customer would be searched for weapons, but baseball bats would be sold prior to entry for $500
F) Once the building was filled to its legal capacity, the strategically placed cameras would begin recording, an overly excited count-down would take place on the PA system, and the items would all drop.
G) You-tube vid goes up immediately, ad revenue funneled to off-shore account US Courts can't touch.

/Yeah, I'd be fired the next day, but what a way to get fired from a shiatty Best Buy manager jorb?

I like to drive by huge lines outside of stores (especially Apple's and Walmart's) and play a soundtrack of cattle being herded and mooing. People sometimes get pretty upset by that. Too bad.
