This video is a great example of what happens when trivial objects are commodified. In this instance the woman goes so far as to pepper spray children, all in the name of 50% off an Xbox 360. She fought for the item as if she relied on it to survive. We as consumers are trained to see things that we want as things that we need, regardless of how trivial this “need” is.
