Pitbull Going to Alaska Because of a Facebook Stunt Gone Awry

Many things have made us LOL today. Among them, this. This. Oh man, this. And this. But this may be the funniest.

Walmart had a promotion with Pitbull in which he would pay a special visit to whatever store managed to get the most Facebook “likes” by July 15. An alt-weekly, The Boston Phoenix hijacked the promo, suggesting that a bunch of people send him to the store in Kodiak, AK. So guess where Pitbull is most likely going? Kodiak, AK. Bap!

Pitbull even went on Twitter to ask people to send him to the Walmart in his hometown, Miami. Nope. Sorry Pitbull. Pack your Mukluks and get ready for a trip to Kodiak, home to the Kodiak bear, the Sitka deer, and 6,130 residents, who have the pleasure of listening to Pitbull’s music via the fiber optics that now connect the town to the rest of the world.

Listen to what the people of Kodiak have in store! Pitbull is really bad.
