I call it the "Toyota Experiment"
Black Friday sales are just another example of corporations seeing how much they can get away with manipulating our dismal state of consumerism.
The reason I call it the Toyota Experiment is because Toyota was/is making such hideous products and consumers still purchased them. They got uglier and uglier and they became the best selling car in America. It was as if Toyota is trying to see how far they can dupe consumers into buying crap.
