It's Black Friday. While last year we recommended you go outside and experience nature, this year we're entertaining the possibility of wholly giving up to consumerism for the day (like every other day). Hey, a little retail therapy might be exactly what you need, whether you're coping with your country's political situation, the sudden chill of late fall, or anything else that's getting you down. Ever-resourceful GIF artists, including J McKeehen, Mr. Tronch, and Kate Bones have encapsulated the dirty pleasure of spending the pain away into mesmerizing loops. If you manage to hold out against ads' constant promise of a better life this Black Friday, congratulations! For the rest of us, here are some GIFs that get it.
