If you, like Jarvis Johnson, already have your Black Friday shopping itinerary planned, I have some bad news for you — it’s a sham. As this brutally honest video from the geniuses at Cracked outlines in great detail, Black Friday is nothing but a ploy that benefits no one and might actually do more damage than good. In addition to giving Thanksgiving the bird (an over-cooked, dry one), it makes people work on a holiday just so you can think you’re part of something that’s only going to happen once. (Spoiler alert: stores have sales all the time.)
Maybe you have a different opinion about Black Friday, but maybe some of you need to be hit by a truth bomb.
