Pitbull to Perform in Alaska Following a Prank - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
Kodiak is a small town in Alaska that you probably have never heard of. It is just like you'd imagine - beautiful and serene. Population is approximately 6000. The town has just found itself in an unexpected spotlight.
Pitbull was part of a promotion by Walmart and Sheets Energy Strips in which he'd visit and perform in the town whose Walmart page got the most likes on Facebook.
Well, the promotion didn't go as anticipated - someone decided to pull a prank and started an online campaign to get most Facebook likes for Kodiak's Walmart. And the efforts were successful as Kodiak with population of about 6,000, received over 70,000 likes beating other locations.
Although a surprising outcome, Walmart and Sheets Energy Strips will surely be happy with the media buzz over this fascinating twist. Pitbull has also been a terrific sport about the outcome and has even invited the individual, who started the initiative, to his performance in Kodiak.
