We've seen some sexy campaign ads (thanks Conan!), but Katarzyna Lenart's "Basic Instinct" ad takes the cake. And it's not a parody. Politico's Ben Smith brought our attention to this ad from the 23-year-old, a Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) candidate in Poland's parliamentary election this weekend.
According to AustrianTimes.at, the slogan at the end reads: "You want more? Vote for SLD. Only we can do more."
The slogan channels the Civic Platform's slogan, "We'll do more," Politico's Smith reports. The Civic Platform (PO) is the country's ruling party.
"I thought it was time to cause a stir," she said.
"My campaign targets young people, and young people are only interested in controversial stuff, unfortunately," she told Gazeta Wyborcza.
About a year ago, a bikini-clad Katarzyna Szczolek, a Polish pop singer who goes by the name Sara May, released sexy campaign posters in an attempt to win a seat representing Bemowo on the Warsaw district council.
A recent poll conducted in Poland suggests that the Democratic Left Alliance will garner the third most votes of any party in this weekend's election, earning it representation in parliament, the Associated Press reports.
