Flying from Cleveland to Alaska and then back down to the lower 48 for a show in Atlanta, Pitbull has proven that he's tremendo world traveler. He's also a man of his word.

Two weeks ago, we reported that Armando Cristian Pérez would "become the first Cuban-American to ever willingly hop on a Kodiak, Alaska-bound flight for the sole purpose of visiting a Walmart."

And yesterday, Pit spent the day in Kodiak, performing at the local Coast Guard base and meeting fans at the city's Walmart.

"Thank [you] Kodiak," Pit tweeted along with a picture of himself at an Alutiiq ceremony. "I am honored, truly."

Mr. Worldwide also received the key to the city from Mayor Pat Branson, according to CBS, and he was presented with a "Kodiak, Alaska survival kit."

In addition to boots, the care package included bear repellent and bear bells to help ward off unwanted intruders.

Pit did, however, encounter at least one bear on his Alaska trip. But he was too stuffed to pose a real threat.
