True to his word, Mr. Worldwide visited a Kodiak, Alaska Wal-Mart today as part of an online contest. True to his word, so did Something Awful’s David Thorpe.

It appears Miami-born rapper Pitbull is doing just fine in chilly Alaska.

The singer, whose real name is Armando Pérez, arrived in Kodiak on Monday as part of a Wal-Mart sponsored competition to send the singer to a city of his fans’ choosing. The entertainer is accompanied by Internet troublemaker and Something Awful columnist David Thorpe (@Arr on Twitter) who helped game the competition via Twitter to send Pitbull to the middle of nowhere.

Pitbull met with Wal-Mart employees and other local residents and was given a key to the city by Kodiak’s mayor. Thorpe has been live-tweeting his day with Pitbull, who told him to “keep bullshitting, next thing you know we’ll be on the moon.”

Here’s how Pitbull’s day went down in cloudy Kodiak.
