Danish candidate advertises on porn site - 'You have to be where the voters are'

Move seen as upstaging anti-immigrant party

A Danish politician who placed an advert on a porn-streaming website has defended his action, saying 'You have to be where your voters are'.

Joachim B Olsen, a 41-year-old Olympic shot put silver medallist and candidate of the centre-right Liberal Alliance carried a crude slogan on his advert: "When you're done w******, vote for Jokke." Jokke is his nickname.

When a Twitter user said he was getting more attention than Rasmus Paludan, the founder and leader of the anti-immigrant party Hard Line, Mr Olsen wrote back: "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."

He also told the Danish Broadcasting Corporation: "You have to be where the voters are."  

He said his campaign was 95% serious, leaving room for a little "fun".

"I hope people get a good laugh. I have received a very positive response to it," he said.

"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."
