The Internet has spoken: Pitbull shall perform in Alaska.
In a product-promo move, the "International Love" rapper, real name Armando Christian Perez, agreed to visit the Wal-Mart that generated the most Facebook likes.
Sounds fun, right? How could social-media democracy possibly go awry?
Enter Boston Phoenix writer David Thorpe, a man so put off by celebrity marketing stunts that he rallied Web troops to "Help us help Wal-Mart exile Pitbull to Alaska."
"As of now, the Kodiak Walmart has over 22,000 new 'likes' on Facebook, putting it far ahead of any other Walmart in the nation — far ahead of Kodiak's actual population, in fact," Thorpe wrote.
