Internet pranksters are trying to send teen pop sensation Justin Bieber on a bizarre tour of Communist North Korea, by rigging an online poll.

A survey on Bieber’s tour page, inviting fans to suggest countries the 16 year old should visit, has been hijacked by a number of websites which are encouraging users to vote en masse for North Korea.

Almost half a million people have suggested the highly secretive country, the population of which has no access to the internet.

The poll closes early on Wednesday, at which point Bieber and his management team will have to decide if they’ll go through with the pledge.

It’s the latest in a series of internet pranks aimed at Bieber, including the viral spreading of rumors that he is dead, has syphilis and that his mother plans to pose nude for Playboy.
