Pitbull makes the most of a chilly prank that was supposed to be a promotion for Walmart and energy supplement, Sheets. An internet campaign was launched by David Thorpe, a writer for somethingawful.com, encouraging others to send Pitbull to perform at the most desolate Walmarts located in America. After thousands of people voted for Pitbull to be sent to Alaska of all places, Mr. 305 took the prank in stride and actually performed in the 907 region. Not only did he go, but he brought along the prankster as well.
Pitbull and Thorpe recently posted pictures and tweets on Twitter on their experience in Kodiak. Pitbull performed among Native Alaskan dancers despite the fact there are more bears in the vicinity than there are people. Walmart made most of the situation as well by taking promotional photos of Pitbull, including a Kodiak survival kit presented to Pitbull which included bear bells and bear repellent and Pitbull with a stuffed bear. Here‘s a video of Pitbull on the Walmart Challenge in question.
Don’t worry though, Pitbull is safe and sound and still performing around the world. Here are more tour dates to prove it:
8/4 Albuquerque, NM
8/5 Tucson, AZ
8/7 Chula Vista, CA
8/8 and 8/9 Universal City, CA
8/10 Las Vegas, NV
8/12 San Francisco, CA
