A Danish MP has admitted he placed an advert for his re-election on one of the biggest porn websites in the world.

Joachim B Olsen admitted that he had indeed placed the ad on Pornhub in an attempt to reach new voters.

The former Olympic silver medalist in the shot put dismissed criticisms about his choice, arguing that “you have to be where your voters are”.

The advert shows the 41-year-old Liberal Alliance MP, whose nickname is Jokke, in a suit with the slogan: "When you're done w******, vote for Jokke.”

Mr Olsen said there was “no limit to how far I will go for the nation”.

He told the Danish Broadcasting Corporation: “Half the internet is porn and you need to be where the voters are, including a porn site.”

The politician added: "I hope people get a good laugh. I have received a very positive response to it.

"I don't know if there are votes in it.

"I am well aware that some people are outraged. 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."

Mr Olsen has previously described himself as “probably the strongest MP in the world” while lifting weights for a campaign video.

The Danish general election will take place on June 5, with left-wing Social Democrats looking likely to win power from the ruling Liberals.
