ANCHORAGE, Alaska - It's official. Pitbull will be coming to Alaska.
Over the last few weeks, Walmart has been running a marketing contest on its Facebook page. The store that gets the most "likes" wins a personal appearance from Pitbull, aka Miami rapper Armando Christian Perez.
A writer for The Boston Phoenix newspaper thought it'd be funny to send Pitbull to the most remote Walmart possible, and encouraged people to "like" the Walmart in Kodiak. It worked, with the store getting more than 70,000 "likes."
Walmart says details of Pitbull's visit are still being worked out, but it will happen at month's end.
During the contest, Pitbull tweeted: "I hear there's bear repellant at Kodiak, Alaska @walmartspecials."
A Walmart spokeswoman says the Kodiak employees will have bear repellent ready for his visit.
