You're going to see a lot of this today. It's the same old drill year after year. You could run the same live footage too and nobody, really, could see any big difference, only the crowds have become larger and more obnoxious, thanks to the assist from local TV/Radio who don't have a creative bone in their body to bring viewers anything different.
Black Friday. Ho hum. The crowd shots have become tiresome. The live shots are predictable too with the usual mass humanity of idiots lined up behind some 500 TV they can buy for 200--it's cliché-central. The reporters are just as moronic as the civilians. The visuals are so, so, back ass --boring too, really. I mean, how many shots of the local shopping mall is enough. We get it. And many of us are tired of seeing all this consumer mayhem. Enjoy the annual barrage and good luck and god forbid any real news breaks.
Meanwhile, back to the live shots of the usual suspects trampling over one another. This is just damn riveting --can't get enough.
