Mansoor Ijaz has once again made waves in Pakistan, this time for his appearance in a music video as a commentator at a kinky wrestling match. The Pakistani-American businessman has also confirmed that he was part of the shoot.

The video for Italian house DJ Junior Jack’s 2004 single ‘Stupidisco’, features scantily clad female wrestlers fighting it out on stage.

Ijaz told The Associated Press (AP) on Wednesday that the music video was not a hoax, adding that he thought the video's emergence was part of an effort by Husain Haqqani to discredit him ahead of his testimony but conceded he had no evidence of this.

He appears in the video at the 2:47 mark and comments on the ongoing match. At one point he is heard saying, "Look at that, we've got some real tumbling going on here."

"I did this as a favor for my wife's best friend, whose planned actor for the part did not show up for the shoot that day," Ijaz said in a telephone interview with AP from an undisclosed location. He said the video shoot took place in Brussels and that there was no other person available with an American accent.
I was never present for any part of the video where those naked girls were shown. My wife was present at all times.

The video started making rounds on Twitter late Tuesday, with questions being raised regarding whether it was actually Ijaz who appeared in the video.

Outspoken Mansoor Ijaz has caused a stir in Pakistan after writing a column in a London based newspaper alleging that a Pakistani government official -- alleged to be the PPP's Husain Haqqani -- had asked him to deliver a controversial document to Admiral Mike Mullen, requesting him to deliver a warning to the Pakistani military against a takeover.

A key witness of the Memogate scandal, Ijaz is likely to appear before the judicial commission tasked with probing the controversy on January 24.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly mentioned American newspaper instead of London based. The error has been rectified.

It is utter ignorance that the media has made the whole Pakistani nation addicted to these political scandals. Please try living in the CAPITAL Islamabad ..in these winter months we have no GAS to warm our kids. Load shedding is for two to three hours a day & We are louder & Clearer toward changing the future of Pakistan. God bless all if we can manage correct larger infrastructure & Communication & Transportation to run safe. NO One wish to fly on PIA. Pakistan railway is diminishing , Politician can digest a whole Steel mill & Many banks but no one can do any thing as ALL ARE INVOLVED EQUALLY.& ALL ARE RESPONSIBLE.
