On Thanksgiving Day, FOX23 found group of guys stationed at the Tulsa Hills Best Buy with a single purpose.

“We want to get some good deals on some TVs and some laptops,” Justin Wooten said.

They are a Black Friday brotherhood.

“I met them a couple years ago, and we only contact each other before Black Friday.”

Charles Luck is the group's ringleader.

“I've done this for the last three years. I was first out here last year, first out here this year,” he said.

Luck set up camp on Tuesday, and he missed his family's Thanksgiving.

“They came up here and hung out with me for a couple hours last night since they knew I would be out here.”

There is no time for turkey when you have your eye on the prize.

“The 50 inch led for $399 is a great deal too, where else are you going to get that?” Emmanuel Torres said.

The guys say camping out for the Black Friday savings is actually like a party. They hang out, play some music, and they have an all around good time.

“We're funny so we sit out here and just crack up, tell jokes, we play football,” Torres said.

In 2012, Mother Nature decided to cooperate.

“Two years ago it was sleeting and everything while we were out here, but this it's just perfect weather,” Luck said about the 75 degree temperatures.

This misfit group of merchandise masters says they wouldn't miss this for the world.

“The 40 inch TV for $179.99, its worth it. I mean I could put it on Craigslist tomorrow for $400,” Diego Alvelar said.

The group of twentysomethings have a message for those who say their crazy.

“I am saving $1500, and you’re not,” Luck said.
