Things got out of control at one Wal-Mart near Little Rock, Arkansas on Black Friday as shoppers went wild over a good deal on kitchen appliances.

Screams could be heard as the greedy shoppers struggled to grab one (or five) of the $2 waffle irons.

A video of the scene was uploaded by a Twitter user who goes by the name “Ms. Clark.”

Consumers at the store didn’t seem to mind that, as WBTV noted, the waffle iron can only cook two waffles at a time. The store also offers a more expensive model that can cook up to four at once.
