Pitbull Being Sent To Kodiak, Alaska Because Of Internet Prank

Rapper Pitbull is being sent to Kodiak, Alaska because a contest was gamed by Thorpe (@Arr), a writer for SomethingAwful.  The contest was put together by Wal-Mart and Pitbull was going to be sent to the Wal-Mart store that had the most Likes on Facebook.

Thorpe wrote a blog post and convinced many of his Twitter followers to vote up the Wal-Mart store in Kodiak, Alaska.  That store ended up hitting over 70,000 Likes on Facebook and they became the winner.  It turns out that Pitbull is keeping his promise and he wants Thorpe to come with him.

BuzzFeed contacted Thorpe and he said that the free trip with Pitbull has not been finalized yet.  “I’ve always wanted to go to Alaska. I’m glad I’l get to do it under the strangest imaginable circumstances.”  Check out the video of Pitbull discussing the contest results below:
