Danish candidate places election ad on adult site

By The Associated Press

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — While most of the candidates for Denmark's general election are making good use of the internet, posting their promises on websites and social media, one has gone a step further.

Joachim B. Olsen, an Olympic shot put silver medalist who has been a member of the Folketing for the center-right Liberal Alliance since 2011 placed an ad bearing the party logo and encouraging people to vote for him on one of the world's top adult websites, Pornhub.

On his official Facebook profile, Olsen confirmed that he was responsible for the ad: "Yes, it's me on Pornhub.

Olsen told Denmark's B.T. newspaper Sunday that "election campaigns are serious ... but there must also be some humor."

The June 5 elections are being held on schedule at the end of the parliament's four-year term.
