Mark Licea interviews people in line ready for the Black Friday 2008 sale, and speaks to a CNET fan and winner.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey, what's going on? I'm Mark Licea, and we are here in New York City. It's Black Friday. Now the economy, not so great this year, but that has not stopped people from coming by. There are two lines wrapped around this building. One's Circuit City. The other's Best Buy. So let's make our rounds and see what people are here to check out. ^M00:00:16 [ Music ] ^M00:00:24 Well, what are you here to buy? What brought you out here? >> I just want to buy an MP3 player for my mother-in-law and a video game for my son. That's about it. And if I see something for myself, I might as well grab it so I make myself feel good. >> What are you guys here to buy? >> Movies. $2.00 movies. >> $2.00 movies. >> DVDs, TV seasons. All that. >> I'm looking to buy the new Sony Wins It Cyber-shot T300. >> How much are they knocking off the price this year? >> I can save a whopping $100.00 today. >> All right, so there's this suspicious white limo here in the back. Can you tell me what's going on with this? >> That would be my limo because I am Black Friday's VIP winner. I wrote an essay. I won first place. I got a limo to pick me up this morning and $1,000.00 gift card, all sorts of pampering, massages -- >> A video camera. >> I -- a video camera. And I got to go in half an hour before everybody else, and I got every doorbuster I wanted. >> That is so awesome. What was this essay about? >> It was about how I love Black Friday and shopping with my mom. >> So this is a traditional thing for you. >> Yep. Every year. Diehards. >> Since when? >> I would say maybe 8, 9, 10 years. >> So you started the trend, the Black Friday trend. >> I think we did. Many -- and the hair trend that you see. I'm known to start a trend or two. I got the best buy of the whole year. The 52-inch Samsung LCD 1080, the hottest deal, $1499.00, five laptops, HP G50 104 NR. I know that because I've typed it into your site numerous times. I swear to you it was so funny when I saw this. I've been on this all night. I haven't slept at -- all night I've been on this website. So that's pretty ironic. It was like the perfect ending of this night. Morning. It's over. >> Now, the Best Buy line is still wrapped around the block, but we were here last year, and it did seem a lot longer. I'm Mark Licea with CNET TV here in New York. See you later. ^M00:02:11 [ Music ]
