Okay, Black Friday sales are known to get a bit nuts, but the one at the Nike factory store at the Seattle Premium Outlets in Tulalip, WA looks like a herd of buffalo trampled it. Well, buffalo looking for good deals on sneakers. Pictures and video of the store are going viral for the sheer madness of the mess.

Larry Downer, the man who posted the above video to Facebook, told Q13 News that it looked "like an earthquake leveled the place." He added, "It’s a huge store and it seems like every inch of the floor was covered in merchandise." Downer did manage to snag a pair of kicks for his son, though, explaining, "Literally found one of the shoes in one aisle and the match to it in the next aisle."

Downer was not exaggerating. The store was open to shoppers all night Thursday and all day Friday, with shoppers wading through piles of sneakers like they were just trudging through unshoveled snow.

It's like a zombie apocalypse. I feel bad for the people who need to clean this up. #BlackFriday #NikeOutletStore

A member of the staff told BuzzFeed News that between 8 p.m. Thursday and 10 p.m. Friday, an estimated 20,000 people came through the store. Humans, not buffalo. Happy holidays, everyone! Be safe out there.
