The Switch, Advertisement, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston

Miramax Films

Get a load of this.

We're not prudes around here, but even we were a bit surprised to see a new ad for Jennifer Aniston's upcoming flick, The Switch.

First, let's explain the premise of the movie. Ms. Aniston plays an unmarried 40-year-old who gets pregnant with the help of a turkey baster. What she doesn't find out until years later is that a drunken mishap forced a friend (Jason Bateman) to replace the sperm she was planning to use with his own.

Now about the ad…

On top, there's a pic of Aniston with a look of surprise on her face. No biggie.

But then there's Bateman. He's on the bottom looking closely into a specimen cup filled with what looks like a healthy dose of, well, you-know-what.

We'll assume that the you-know-what is fake—unless co-directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck insisted on some method acting.

Now we want to hear from you. Pumped up for the movie or not in the mood? Leave your comments below.
