Black Friday is a great day for people watching. What says “I’m thankful” on “Thanksgiving” more than trampling a bunch of people to death for the newest version of crap that you already have? Absolutely nothing.

Telegram and GazetteBlack Friday shoppers at the Solomon Pond Mall were greeted by a nearly naked “Santa” outside one of the mall’s entrances at about 12:30 a.m. The young man, identified as Eric Watterson, 18, of Lancaster, was clothed in nothing but a thong, a strategically placed Santa hat and sneakers while standing in line with customers just before doors opened.

Ken Brown, area general manager of Solomon Pond, said that when security officers went to open the mall doors, they found the conspicuously dressed teenager and told him he was not allowed to enter the premises. Marlboro police officers on scene, at request of the mall to manage traffic and shopping flow, were alerted to the situation. Then, the au naturel Santa was handed over to the police department.

Mr. Watterson has been charged with open and gross lewdness and disturbing the peace. He told police upon his arrest — after baring his buttocks to about 100 people standing in line — that he was taking photos for a friend’s art project, according to Police Detective Scott DeCiero.

I thought this was America? You can seriously get arrested for this? I just watched a hundred hippies forcefully take over Worcester for two hours on Tuesday and not a one of them was arrested. And THIS guy gets arrested for “disturbing the peace?” Apparently you’re allowed to stand in the middle of Lincoln Square during rush hour, but God forbid you wear on a thong in public on black Friday.

And seriously, “disturbing the peace?” What peace? This is God damn Black Friday. When I think of Black Friday the last thing I think of is peace. Black Friday is anarchy and debauchery. Like these lovely creatures exchanging fisticuffs over the last piece of XL lingerie:

Can you believe what savages these people are? I mean, honestly, if you’re gonna videotape a Black Friday fight then at least have the decency to hold your phone horizontally. Hasn’t Busgate taught us ANYTHING???

But seriously, this is why the terrorists hate us. Here you have a distinguished looking woman in a Northface and Uggs fighting some other moron for lingerie. I think we can all agree that the biggest loser here is whoever has to see any of these lovely women in the lingerie they’re fighting over. I feel awful that their boyfriends have to see any of these women in anything other than a hoodie and sweat pants.

I’d share all the amazing Black Friday videos out there, but you can google that yourselves. All I know is that this morbidly obese ginger WON Black Friday:

Here in the US of A we don’t have time for exercise, but we DO have all the time in the world to wait in a line and fight each other for discounted electronics that we don’t really need. Murica.

This is why it’s not a big deal that this guy got dressed up for the occasion at the Solomon Pond Mall. The kid was perfectly dressed for it. He had a santa hat on his schmenzer. Fair game. If you’re offended by that then don’t go shopping at midnight on Black Friday. I’ve never been, nor do I intend to go. But if I do, I fully expect to see several brawls and a man in a Santa thong. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

Feel free to share your thoughts to keep the conversation going.

    I went to school with him and actually was friends with him. If you actually know the kid, this is really really funny. He was probably honestly intending to help out his friend, I dont think he meant harm by it at all. Cool of you guys to defend him though.
    But now i live in another state and im at a 4 year college… People down here even know of him -_- Its really weird how fast this stuff spreads.
    On the other hand, hes probably really freaking famous right now soooooo i mean everybody knows who Naked Santa is… i mean EVERYBODY. So…. whos the real winner here? Hes like probably FB famous now.

    This kid was in my graduating class in high school, and honestly, I’m glad someone important finally called him out on his bullshit. Maybe now he’ll stop being so obnoxious. And his friend, who also graduated with us, is not even pursuing a career in art or photography… so I have no sympathy.

      I also graduated with this kid and I agree, he needed to be called out on his obnoxious behavior. Knowing him personally, I can tell you that this was not a silent demonstration, and the actions of Marlboro Police and Mall Security are completely justified.

      Why does knowing him personally make you more qualified here. Your sentiments have nothing to do with the point of the article- it’s about sexual prejudice, not a kid’s High School history.

        Knowing him qualifies us (Yes I too graduated with him) to know his reasonings for his actions. Yes, a stranger could call this “heroic” for finally making a statement against Black Friday… But what you don’t know is that this kid has done nothing but try and be the center of attention his entire life. So no, I do not think this was an act of valor, but a “look at me! look at me! I’m on tv and everyone thinks I’m important!!!!” cry for attention.

    I hope this kid takes this to court. Businesses can dress up hot women in next to nothing to sell there products…..kid, you could have a ground breaking lawsuit on your hands, don’t waste it.

    If he were on a beach, nobody would have batted an eye. I call bullshit!

    If it were a woman in a bikini would she have been arrested?
