Recently, popular rapper Pitbull announced that he and Wal Mart were holding a contest - whichever Wal Mart store's Facebook page earned the most new likes would get a special Pitbull concert in their town. So, naturally, people on the internet decided to hijack the contest and send Pitbull to Kodiak, Alaska - population 6130. It worked.
As the internet becomes more and more influential, companies and musicians alike are forever searching for new ways to use social media platforms to connect with people. In all the excitement about getting a bunch of new Facebook likes or Twitter followers, it's easy to overlook the power of a few pranksters to make mischief. I doubt this is the last time we see something like this happen.
So: would you prank a musician like that? Who? How?
And well we're talking pranks, ever seen any bands prank each other on stage? Off stage? Or have you ever pulled any memorable pranks? Now is the time to spill, we're all friends here!
