Pitbull at Verizon Center, selling the American Dream

Who's that baldheaded party machine who keeps popping up on our screens? The guy with the designer sunglasses and the sharp blazers, trying to sell us new cars and light beer?

For starters, the concert opened with a biographical text scrolling across a video screen, explaining how Pitbull went from the proud son of two Cuban expatriates to a platinum-selling pop star who has branded himself "Mr. Worldwide."
