It’s arguable whether his fans or haters are sending him there, but Pitbull is being exiled to a REMOTE bear-infested Island of Alaska, called Kodiak, for a personal appearance.
Wal-Mart started an online contest on its Facebook page a while ago: whichever store got the most likes would be
subjected to graced with a visit from Armando Christian Perez (that’s Pitbull).
Meanwhile, a writer for The Boston Phoenix named David Thorpe thought it would be HILARZ to send Pitbull to the most remote Wal-Mart possible. ENTER KODIAK. Through Facebook, Twitter (#exilePitbull) and various media outlets Thorpe encouraged people to “like” the Wal-Mart in Kodiak, earning it 70,000 “likes,” even though the population of the Island is just over 13,000.
To Pitbull’s credit, he kept a good sense of humor over the whole incident and tweeted:
Pitbull even uploaded a YouTube video from his tour leg in Madrid, addressing the prankster. ”You gotta understand that I would go anywhere in the world for my fans,” he said. In the end the joke is on Thorpe because Pitbull invited him along for the appearance in Kodiak… and that’s a LONG flight.
