A former Olympic shot-putter-turned-politician in Denmark has placed campaign ads on porn website PornHub in advance of the general election.

Joachim B. Olsen, who won several world titles in addition to a silver medal at the 2004 Olympic Games, was elected to the Danish parliament at the 2011 election, representing the Liberal Alliance in the Greater Copenhagen constituency.

By the way, did we mention he’s hot?

With this year’s general elections looming on the horizon (June 5), Olsen made the unusual move of buying campaign ads on Pornhub which read, “When you’re done wanking, vote for Jokke.”

Jokke is the 41-year-old lawmaker’s nickname.

When a Twitter user complained Olsen was receiving more attention than his opponent, Rasmus Paludan, the founder and leader of the anti-immigrant party Hard Line, Olsen tweeted: “There is no limit to how far I will go for the nation. If it takes an ad on pornhub to keep Rasmus Paludan out of the foreign media, I’ll take one for the team.”

In an interview, Olsen told the Danish Broadcasting Corporation, “You have to be where the voters are.”

He also said his campaign is 95% serious, but admitted he likes to leave room for a little “fun.”

“I hope people get a good laugh,” he said. “I have received a very positive response to it. I don’t know if there are votes in it.”

And yes, he knows the unconventional campaign ad buy might upset some conservative folks.

“I am well aware that some people are outraged,” he offered. “One cannot say anything today without people being outraged. Those who know me as a politician, they know I’m a serious politician. But I also have humour, and I think this is fun.”

What do you think, readers? Is this light-hearted fun, or should PornHub be off-limits for political campaigns?
