Politician defends posting campaign advert on Pornhub

May 16th, 2019 1 min read

Former Danish athlete turned politician Joachim Olsen has taken his campaign a notch higher by posting an advert on a porn site.

The former shot put Olympic silver medalist placed the advert on the popular porn site ‘Pornhub’ as part of his re-elections campaign.

He urged his supporters to vote for him once they were done with the site.

His slogan in the Ad reads “when you finish wanking, vote for jokke” – a nickname for persons called Joachim in Dane.

Olsen argued that half of internet traffic is to porn websites and as such he needs to be where the voters are.

“You need to get out everywhere, so we thought to it could be amusing with an Ad on Pornhub. Half the internet is porn and you need to be where the voters are including porn sites,” Olsen was quoted by the Copenhagen Post.

In a Facebook post, Olsen removed doubts by confirming that the unconventional campaign strategy is indeed his.

“Yes, I am the one who is on Pornhub. And no, there are not the big thoughts behind. I just hope you have a good laugh” he wrote.

The politician is seeking to be re-elected to the Danish parliament in the coming general election slated for June 5, 2019.

Olsen finished second in the shot put even during the 2004 Olympic Games held in Athens and later quit the spot to join politics.
