Good news: I'll definitely go to Alaska with @Pitbull. Bad news: I've been trying to grow a beard in preparation and it's NOT going well.

After an Internet campaign by Boston Phoenix writer David Thorpe garnered the Kodiak, Alaska Walmart over 70,000 Facebook likes, Pitbull will head there to play a show as part of his upcoming tour.
In a promotion for Walmart, the rap star agreed to visit whichever store received the most “likes” on its Facebook page.
Naturally, the Internet jumped at the opportunity to send Pitbull far, far away.
Pitbull will be shuttling to Kodiak, Alaska, to greet Walmart customers, thanks to a successfully-executed #ExilePitbull campaign.

Internet sends Pitbull to Alaska, because space flight does not yet allow for sending him to Mars.
