Pitbull may be forced to make a personal appearance in Alaska after internet pranksters hijacked a competition organised by the rapper and Walmart.
The 'Give Me Everything' star has stated that he will appear at the branch of Walmart which receives the most votes via his official Facebook page in a competition organised in conjunction with Energy Strips, a famous brand of sheets.
Spotting a window of opportunity, David Thorpe and John Hendren of online comedy site Something Awful are urging people who are less than keen on Pitbull to vote for the Walmart branch in Kodiak, Alaska - the most remote branch of Walmart in America and the kind of place that has very little use for a VIP area.
One Alaskan user of website Reddit is excited to see Pitbull in his town, saying: “It’s not a regular sized Walmart, it’s about half the size and sells all sorts of strange stuff. Bear repellant, snow shoes, hunting gear.”
At the time of writing the Kodiak branch of Walmart has more votes in the contest than the number of residents in the town itself.
