The R-rated animated feature Sausage Party, which explored the secret lives of foodstuffs in all of the most hilariously inappropriate ways possible, had no shortage of raunchy sight gags. Around the time of its release, the film's voice actor, producer and co-writer Seth Rogen went on The Howard Stern Show to discuss its bonkers aesthetic and nimble sidestepping of an NC-17 rating due to the infamous closing "food orgy" scene. "We probably added six things into the orgy that we were like, 'OK, these are like our sacrificial lambs,'" Rogen explained. But the MPAA only demanded one cut—a weirdly specific one.
If you look closely during the scene, you may notice that the pita bread is… well, male, and partially anatomically correct. In order to secure an R rating, the MPAA suggested that some light manscaping take place, and insisted that the bread's anatomy be "digitally shaved." "I wish I could have been there, honestly," said Rogen. "I imagine a very heated debate did occur." That the MPAA could watch the entirety of Sausage Party and single this one thing out as just too much seems to defy explanation, but they're the professionals.
