Pitbull is staying true to his nickname, “Mr. Worldwide”. This past month Sheets-brand Energy Strips, Pitbull and Walmart teamed up for a promotional stunt, where the city Walmart Facebook page with the most new likes by July 15th, 2012 would receive a visit from Pitbull himself. Well, the masses of Facebook teamed up, and as viral sensations are likely to do, decided to mess with the system. Their combined “like” power decided to bring Pitbull to the smallest city in the world with a Walmart: Kodiak, Alaska. Over 70,000 likes later…well, you can finish the story. In an email to the Associated Press, Walmart confirmed that Kodiak won and that Pitbull will be performing there on July 30, 2012.
No city is too small for Pitbull. Even if it has a population of 6,130. Check out Pitbull’s response to this chilly detour:
So far, the 2012 Planet Pit world tour has taken this Latin hip-hop megastar through five continents, from countries such as South Africa to Luxembourg to Brazil. The tour also marks the promotion for his upcoming studio album Global Warming which is planned to be released later this year. Pitbull has also enjoyed major success from “Back in Time” which was used as the theme for Men in Black 3. His recently-released single “Get it Started” featuring the lovely Colombian pop-princess, Shakira, has already begun to top charts. One thing’s for sure: this has been one hot summer for Pitbull. Clearly Pitbull is a good listener when it comes to his fans, so make sure to demand him in your hometown and see if he will visit you next!
