It's like a zombie apocalypse. :O

Fans and scalpers battled it out this morning, 3 June, when Uniqlo finally dropped its much anticipated collaboration with American artist Kaws in its outlets worldwide

KAWS: Summer is the Japanese fashion retailer's third collaboration with the American contemporary artist, whose real name is Brian Donnelly. 

The range, which encompasses men's and kids' T-shirts as well as tote bags, features Kaws' iconic Companion and BFF characters as well as subtle presentations of his famed X-ed out eyes.

At the time of writing, it is said that several popular designs - especially store exclusive ones - have already been sold out

In a video that has gone viral on social media, customers in China were shown racing and stampeding down a hallway to get to a Uniqlo store

Someone actually made an Avengers: Endgame edit out of it:

In another video, a bunch of people were seen scrambling and crawling their way into the store before the doors were even fully open à la The Walking Dead

Not content with just grabbing merchandise off the racks, some even climbed onto display tables to strip T-shirts off of the mannequins!

The insane videos were compiled in this Facebook post, which has been shared close to 2,000 times at the time of writing.

Thankfully, the crowd in Malaysia was a lot more subdued, but that didn't mean they weren't willing to wait for hours in the rain just to be one of the first Malaysians to cop some limited edition merch
