Black Friday videos being uploaded to YouTube that show shoppers behaving badly. One video, named "Lady steals from kid. Black Friday 2015," already has nearly 70,000 views since being uploaded on November 26; however, folks are wondering if the video is real or fake.

"Im posting anonymous because I don want 2b fired, but I work at this store in saginaw and this lady stole a veggie steamer from a KID on black friday! Shame."

"Can't wait for the Jimmy Kimmel monologue. 'It's the viral video that hardly anybody has watched. Haha, we fooled you guys again! Just don't read the comments. Trust us, youtube was fooled.... don't scroll. STOP! STOP SCROLLING! NOOOO WE FOOLED THEM I SUPER PROMISE!'"
"100% staged. -Thief enters from right side of frame while everyone else comes in form the left. -Thief takes box from kid despite boxes littered across the floor. -Set speed to 0.25 and watch from the beginning. The woman and kid are visible at the top of the frame, boxes already in hand."

"Look at the start of the video: the mom and child are already in place holding the products."

"Why didn't she just pick one up from the floor? There were a lot of them."

"Staged to h***. Giving this channel views and the hopes that they can sell this video for profit to media outlets."

Among the most popular videos related to Black Friday recently uploaded to YouTube, the "lady steals from kid" video is growing in views in leaps and bounds with over 70,000 views. However, those pegging it as a fake video might be correct.

All the other factors, such as the available veggie steamers on the floor, and the fact that the mother and child already have their veggie steamers in their hands at the beginning of the video point to it being a staged video. Whether Kimmel is behind the video or not remains to be seen. The outrage of a woman blatantly stealing from a child would be the stuff of viral videos, and someone like Kimmel and his creative team would likely make such a video about veggie steamers, knowing it would likely become popular pretty quickly.
