Wal-Mart Dance Party

Posted by on November 30 at 14:28 PM

The Stranger sent Charles Mudede to Tacoma Mall—AKA the museum of shattered glass—for Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, because we wanted to see how the mall was getting on after a shooting there the previous Sunday. The editors of Toilet Paper in Colorado Springs wanted to see “…what happens when you take a gang of 25 punks, sceneagers and freaks to Wal-Mart for a dance party on the busiest shopping weekend of the year?”

You get busted by security, it turns out. You can watch the video here. Listen for the indignant woman, a shopper, who asks the dancers what right they have to, you know, fill Wal-Mart joy and life on the busiest shopping day of the year. It’s hilarious.
