Mad Max: Black Friday spoofs the sales rush superbly

A ruinous wasteland of debris and carnage where savages and raiders fight over bright objects. And people get shot...

Indeed, the dusty warpaths of Mad Max Fury Road aren’t all that dissimilar to the beleaguered shopping malls across the US on Black Friday, that increasingly fraught day when crowds of people are crushed in a trolley-wheeling frenzy for cheap goods.

And this excellent mash-up - pitting Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron's retail workers against armies of angry shoppers - perfectly sums up just how bonkers these Thanksgiving sales are becoming.

It's all a bit mad isn’t it?
