Yogi Bear: the movie gets an unintentionally(?) smutty poster.

There are few things more amusing than accidental vulgarity, especially where it concerns products aimed at kids. It's the best of both worlds, as the kids won't get the joke, so there is no real harm to their allegedly fragile psyches, but adults (and overgrown children) can have a decent chuckle. I'm not sure how no one at the normally crack Warner Bros marketing department didn't notice how disconcerting this poster looked, especially when combined with the 'Great things come in bears' tagline. While we may not get that R-rated horror film version of Yogi Bear that I desperately crave, we're apparently getting a poster advertising the R-rated sex comedy version, a poster than only a member of LAMBLA could love. For more goodies of this nature, check out this Cracked article from April of this year concerning '15 Unintentionally Perverted Toys For Children'.
