Oh Denmark, you never cease to amaze us these days! Whether you’re noted for being one of the happiest places in the galaxy to live or your Copenhagen Zoo euthanizes perfectly healthy exotic animals, you are keeping us on our toes.

This time your “Do It for Denmark” has us both shocked and giggling.

In a hilarious new ad campaign, Spies Travel is offering a free holiday to any Danish citizen who gets pregnant on one of its “ovulation discount” trips.

The video ad above makes reference to the the dipping birth rate within the country, which is currently at a 27-year-low.

To win the contest, Danes must:

1. Book a trip.

2. Enjoy the destination, while engaging in plenty of baby-making activity.

3. Send pictures of positive pregnancy tests and a medical record as proof that the trip led to a pregnancy.

4. Have the baby, and receive amazing prizes for the first three years of the baby’s life.
