A mayoral candidate in Bosnia is hoping that sex really does sell.

Mirad Hadziahmetovic is running as an independent candidate for mayor of Zenica, Bosnia's fourth-largest city.

Trailing in the polls and running out of time before October's election, Hadziahmetovic decided to upload pornography video clips to his official campaign website in an effort to attract voters, The Associated Press reported.

To view the material, visitors must confirm they are 18 or older and answer questions like, "What is more important for Zenica, job creation or increasing the municipal budget" through taxes?

Hadziahmetovic appears at the end of each clip, telling viewers: "If you liked this clip, vote for me," according to The Huffington Post.

But that's not all.

A PDF file containing his official platform positions ends with a big space containing the text, “Your ad could be here.”
