Internet Pranksters Campaign to Send the Rapper Pitbull to Alaska

Someone at Walmart had the brilliant idea of trying to popularize the company's social media site by holding a contest: whichever Walmart store has the most likes will get a visit from rapper Pitbull.

The thing is, they didn't count on the Interweb weighing in:

Walmart's Facebook campaign for Energy Sheets, a caffeinated equivalent to Listerine strips, promises to send rapper Pitbull to the Walmart store with the most likes on Facebook. But what happens if the Walmart store with the most likes is on a tiny Alaskan island, accessible only by plane or ferry?

The campaign to send American rapper Pitbull to the Alaskan island Kodiak was hatched by David Thorpe and Jon Hendren, two writers of the comedic Internet culture website Something Awful, on June 29.

The campaign to send Pitbull to Kodiak, Alaska, needless to say, is winning: Link

Now that the Kodiak Wal-mart employees are involved in the movement, I really do hope Wal-mart and Pitbull honor the contest and give the people of Kodiak a great experience. I am sure few (if any) popular musicians include Kodiak on their music tours. Miami (and Los Angeles, for example) will undoubtedly get to enjoy the music stylings of Pitbull again in the near future.

And I hope Pitbull realizes the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get an all-expenses paid trip to Alaska. I've heard Alaska is incredibly beautiful, and I hope to visit one day.
