‘Sausage Party’ and 'Finding Dory’ are both animated movies, but that’s roughly where the similarity ends.
So one can only imagine the parents running for the doors as the trailer for the former appeared on-screen at a screening of the latter.
Families at the Brenden theatre in Concord, California, were treated to a teaser of Seth Rogen’s X-rated cartoon as the waited for Pixar main feature.
And while the movie is extremely racy, the trailer really doesn’t hold back much either.

It’s worth noting that there is a highly NSFW version of the trailer (check it here, but be warned) too, and while it’s not been confirmed which one went up on the big screen, both still be wildly unsuitable for a young audience.
The theatre has now issued a formal apology to those affected by the mistake.
“Playing that trailer was a one-time honest mistake by a theater manager moving screens around in effort to accommodate several large last minute groups wanting to see Dory, the wrong movie was started by mistake,” said Walter Eichinger, the Vice-President of Operations for Brenden Theatres.
“Our movies are now started and stopped by computer and a click of a mouse. We moved a couple of screens to larger houses to accommodate some walk-up groups over a very, very busy Dory weekend. In the rush one hardworking manager clicked the wrong movie.
“It was caught soon but not until that trailer was played. We regret it, apologize for it and we are not happy that it happened. We fully realize that this trailer is not appropriate for Dory and we would never schedule something like that.
“The trailer for Sausage Party is not and has never been scheduled with Dory.”
Released earlier this year, Rogen’s filthy cartoon follows a group of anthropomorphic foods – voiced by an all-star cast including James Franco and Kristen Wiig – as they realise the true horror of their existence; that they are all destined to be eaten by humans.
