Pitbull: Confirmed for Walmart visit in Alaska
Rapper Pitbull will visit a Walmart in Alaska, it has been confirmed.
The artist will head to the town of Kodiak after an online competition for him to visit the branch with the most votes was hijacked by pranksters.
David Thorpe and Jon Hendren of online comedy site Something Awful started an online campaign to "#ExilePitbull" by sending him to the most remote branch of Walmart in America.
"Pitbull is having a contest where he'll visit the local Walmart that gets the most FB Likes. [Hendren] and I are sending him to Kodiak, Alaska. Go to this page and enter zip code 99550," Thorpe had told his Twitter followers.
For the Kodiak location, over 71,000 Facebook likes were registered. The Alaskan town has a population of just 6,000 people.
"I heard that Kodiak, Alaska, has the most likes due to someone that thinks he was playing a prank," Pitbull said in a video message published on Tuesday (July 17).
"You gotta understand, I will go anywhere in the world for my fans... I want to invite that someone who thinks that it's a joke to Kodiak, Alaska, with me."
