The day marks the start of the Christmas shopping season in the US in the countdown to the big day. This year though the chaos started a day early on Thanksgiving when crowds of people rushed to stores to bag bargains.

One shopper filmed some of yesterday's madness in a Walmart store on his mobile phone. In the short video people can be seen frantically fighting over items, with one man violently pushing others out of the way before getting into a tug of war with another shopper over a television.

The shopper filming the incident was shortly asked to leave the store after capturing the footage.

The video is just one of the many instances of the frenetic and irrational behaviour among shoppers in the US.

Here is another video taken by a shopper in a Walmart showing two people getting into a tussle in the shop. One of the individuals has to be restrained by two polices officers yet continues to struggle and resist.
