Watch As Wal-Mart Customers Nearly Riot For Smartphones On Black Friday

Wal-Mart, Black Friday, riot, smartphones,

Black Friday has just passed but by now we’re still seeing how people can do crazy things at Wal-Mart during this time of the year.

Reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic riot for food and water, customers at this certain Wal-Mart were caught on tape nearly rioting to get their hands on discounted consumer electronics device.

First noticed by The Telegraph in this report, the video is of the Wal-Mart in Moultrie, Georgia at its pay-as-you-go smartphones booth.

This certainly supports a report from PhoneArena which says Wal-Mart has confirmed over 10 million transactions, most of them being for electronics, done from 8pm to 12am on Thursday.

PhoneArena also says that you may be better off shopping from the comforts of your own home.

We are inclined to agree given the way people acted at this Wal-Mart on Black Friday.
