“Bad Moms” Ad Too Risque For Russia

The R-rated comedy “Bad Moms” has been something of a sleeper his this past Summer with the STX Entertainment title pulling in $125.9 million worldwide from a $20 million budget.

However, the film has gotten into some trouble in Russia, home country of one of its stars Mila Kunis. THR reports that a St. Petersburg-based ad agency refused to place billboards for the movie in the city because of sexual implications.

The billboard featured the tagline ‘Do You Want Some Kunis?’ with Mila posing on it. The problem is that in Russian, Kunis is very close to the word for ‘cunnilingus’.

A conservative St. Petersburg legislator named Vitaly Milonov praised the ad agency’s actions for “saving the city’s pride” in a statement: “We couldn’t care less about the distributor’s interests and opinion. St Petersburg is the cultural capital, and you shouldn’t bring all kinds of trash here.”

A Russian news site adds that a St. Petersburg TV station refused to air a TV spot for the movie due to “sexual content.” The movie, which also stars Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, opened in Russia on September 1st.
