(Newser) – The Internet successfully sent Pitbull to Alaska. The Miami rapper was in Kodiak yesterday, along with David Thorpe, the Boston writer who initially dreamed up the idea to get the rapper—who has a Walmart marketing deal and had agreed to visit the Walmart location that got the most Facebook likes—sent to the most remote Walmart possible. While there, Pitbull received the key to the city from the mayor … and bear spray from Walmart. The rapper had tweeted about bear spray when it first became obvious he'd end up in Alaska. Now he says he'll include Kodiak in a future song, the AP reports.

Thank U Kodiak...I am honored, truly, Pitbull tweeted, along with this photo.
