Facebook users kidnap campaign Walmart and ask the singer Pitbull exiled to an island
A fun idea and that certainly brought a smile to a creative director who approved it, it can sometimes become the executioner himself a campaign. This seems to have happened with an “ingenious” action that WalMart launched their followers to vote until 15 July between the U.S. branch of the chain, the most popular. The award would be for the Cuban-born singer Pitbull’s visit as a promotional figure caffeine tablets Sheets Energy name.
Upon learning of this campaign, David Thorpe and Jon Hendren , creators of the humor site Something Awful , quick reflexes of the hashtag #ExilePitbull shot and began to recommend the Walmart branch number 2711, located in Kodiak Island in Alaska , not the singer-rapper’s visit, but that is left to live.
The action was a complete success and the Kodiak Island branch has already received over 60 thousand votes, nearly 10 times the population of the island.
Apparently the singer Pitbull took the challenge with humor and said he will fulfill his promise, but also sent a message to David Thorpe inviting him to join him when he visits the branch office winner, what is said, a rapper with a short fuse .
Meanwhile, his attempts to derail the campaign #ExilePitbull with the hashtag #keeppitbull305, calling on his supporters to vote Walmart Branch 305, Miami (which sounds like all I was armed as a means) has not taken effect among the followers the rapper.
