Pitbull 'Exiled' to Alaska After Internet Prank Succeeds
David Thorpe was a man with a plan: get rid of Pitbull.
Thorpe had decided that he had had quite enough of the rapper, and you can't blame him for it: Pitbull has been tremendously overplayed on the radio, had a Dr. Pepper commercial that you couldn't avoid, and appeared on pretty much any and every vocal competition show on TV.
All this, and the man just rambles in monotone through his horribly repetitive songs. Half the time he isn't even saying words, and most of the time he isn't rhyming them.
So, when Pitbull announced that he would visit one of a selection of Wal-Mart stores that got the most "likes" on Facebook, Thorpe sprung into action. He organized an Internet prank to send Pitbull to the Wal-Mart in Kodiak, Alaska, and the idea went viral as pretty much everybody on the Internet decided that "exiling" Pitbull to a cold, remote corner of the country would be a great idea.
Here's the best part: it succeeded, and Pitbull just visited the Wal-Mart store in Kodiak over the weekend. Even better, Pitbull took the whole thing in stride, humbly accepting the honor and paying to take Thorpe along for the ride.
So the prankster and his victim spent a bit of time in Alaska, posing with suffed bears and tweeting at each other. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Sun-Tzu ;)" tweeted Pitbull.
Aw man, does this mean I have to like Pitbull now?
