Want Pitbull to Visit the Brick Walmart?

The national chain's Facebook contest will bring the Miami-based rapper to the store with the most new "likes."

Did you ever think you'd run into the suave rapper Pitbull in the aisles of your neighborhood Walmart? 

Probably not, but it could happen. 

Walmart and Pitbull have joined forces for a promotion that will bring the Miami-based rapper to the Walmart store that gets the most new Facebook "likes" by July 15. 

But, there's a hitch–the Walmart in one remote town is  already way ahead in the voting. 

As a gag, a writer for The Boston Phoenix, an alternative newsweekly, started a campaign to send Pitbull to the most out-of-the-way Walmart possible, and that's in Kodiak, AK. 

The Kodiak Walmart had 66,000 "likes" as of Friday evening. 

If Pitbull fans want to see him at the Walmart on Route 88 in Brick, they'll need to pick up the pace. The store had 577 "likes" on Friday night. 

To take part in the contest, "like" your local Walmart on Facebook.

Another reason for me to stay out of WalMart.

Yeah bring him to the Brick WalMart, where he can mingle with grown men and women in their pajamas, screaming unsupervised kids, and the rudest staff in the history of customer service.
