Ingrid Betancourt, one of the two female candidates, running for presidency in Colombia, made up a very original way to win the potential electorate over to her side. She was giving away the Viagra pills to people in one of the central streets of Bogota.
“I am doing this in order to raise Colombia, so that the citizens of the country could be satisfied,” – said she. This action cause a huge traffic jam in the streets, since a very big crowd of people gathered, hoping to get the world known pill for men.

In spite of the fact her methods are totally outstanding and shocking, Betancourt was very successful and gained the majority during the elections among the independent candidates.
