Black Friday is almost upon us once more, with the craziest shopping day of the year bringing out the madness in people

Black Friday is a pretty new concept in Ireland, with stores only really getting in on the action in the last couple of years, but in the United States it's a very different matter.

The pre-Christmas shopping day has become an annual tradition, a way to take all of the goodwill created by the Thanksgiving holiday the day before and destroying it with hours of gruelling queuing and behaviour more befitting a zombie horde than grown up humans. Seriously, things get out of control each and ever year in the States, with shoppers so obsessed with getting the best deal possible that they pretty much forget Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace and joy for all.

We've put together some of the craziest Black Friday videos below and if there's one lesson to be learnt it's that we should all just try to be nice to eachother out there!

Some of this stuff looks like it's from a disaster movie.

And some people are just really, really excited about getting a good deal...
