(Newser) – "You have to be where the voters are," according to Danish politician Joachim Olsen—who explains that's why he's now advertising on Pornhub. "When you're done wanking, vote for Jokke," reads the ad, which refers to a nickname for Joachim and depicts the member of parliament in a suit. "Yes, it's me on Pornhub," Olsen confirmed on Facebook ahead of a June 5 general election. In response to a tweet, he added, per Sky News, "there is no limit to how far I will go for the nation." The 41-year-old, who describes himself as "probably the strongest MP in the world," was an Olympic silver medalist in shot put before joining the center-right Liberal Alliance in 2011.

He argues his latest campaign is "95% serious," but leaves room for a bit of levity. "I think this is fun," Olsen says of the ad. And while "some people are outraged … I have received a very positive response to it." Per CNN, Pornhub describes Denmark as having "an impressive showing" on the site, ranked 28th in terms of traffic by country, despite a worldwide population rank of 114th. In addition to offering far too much information on the country's sexual interests, the site also lists the average Danish user as 38—or roughly Olsen's age. (Read more Pornhub stories.)
