How marketing works. [x]
Please pay attention.
To sum it up ill be the best person you'll ever know, all you have to do is give me a chance to show you.
Black Friday is the day where the true ugliness of American culture shines. Worst idea ever unless you’re the CEO of one of the many companies that profit from the so-called “American Dream”. 4 deaths, and 74 injuries later, this country still hasn’t learned shit, and the people flock to shops and shopping malls to spend hard-earned money on crap no one needs. Somewhere in the realm of fictional characters, Gordon Gekko is smiling.
I’m sure you’re feeling pretty superior using your lesser known fictional character of the day in a post on tumblr but it’s truly disgusting when people would rather blame the state of Black Friday on the people participating rather than the people facilitating so let me break it down for you:
- IT IS REALLY FUCKING DISGUSTING that corporations have up priced their items so high that they can afford to have a 70% off sale in November.
- IT IS REALLY FUCKING DISGUSTING that in order for many people to go to Black Friday events, people have to work on Thanksgiving
- and IT IS REALLY FUCKING DISGUSTING that people would even choose to get up at 4am on the day after we give thanks to shop for the holidays.
- IT IS NOT AT ALL DISGUSTING IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT that there are people who can not afford a Christmas without Black Friday sales so they go to these sales to give their families a plentiful holiday.
like how fucking dare you mention corporations and then in same sentence lambast people who go to the sales during this time because it might be the only time they’ll be able to get a new TV, or fridge, etc
