Watch Malaysian Shoppers Storm A Uniqlo Outlet And Climb On Racks For KAWS T-Shirts

The popular collection was re-released on Friday, 30 August.

Remember when shoppers in China stampeded and stripped off mannequins just to get their hands on Uniqlo's limited edition KAWS collection?

Looks like Malaysians are taking a leaf out of their book for the collection's re-release last Friday, 30 August.

In a video that has gone viral, frenzied shoppers at a mall in Puchong were seen rushing and shoving each other to get into a Uniqlo outlet.

The fashion retailer recently announced the return of selected items from the 'KAWS: Summer' collection, which was initially released and almost instantaneously snapped up in June. 

The jaw-dropping video, uploaded by local YouTuber Sammicci, has been viewed over 898,000 times on Facebook at the time of writing.

A young man even climbed onto a shelf to choose and hog some T-shirts on an upper rack. Despite other shoppers shouting at him for his behaviour, the man remained unfazed and even threw a T-shirt to another shopper among the crowd.

Sammicci noted that the entire rack of T-shirts were all snapped up in two minutes, leaving hangers and display cards strewn all over the floor

Someone even lost a shoe. 

In another video posted by Twitter user @mrandmrsaidil, shoppers at another Uniqlo outlet were also seen scrambling to get their hands on the limited edition T-shirts and tote bags
