Is there any way to report an offensive ad on IMDB?

From time to time an ad will feature questionable content and I'd like to know if it can be reported. Thanks

Well, one of the choices for category of this post was IMDb Ads.

I'll move this post there, and then if you provide the title where you saw the ad, perhaps the seller/product, perhaps an IMDb staffer can look into it.
Edited to add:
Y'know, you should also specify whether you were watching an IMDbTV title, or whether this is just an ad on an IMDb page.

Featured Movie Poster is Highly Inappropriate
The current featured movie of Borat "Subsequent Moviefilm" and his "strategic" mask placement
is incredibly offensive. 
It's fine if others think I'm too conservative, 
but I don't want to see that 
AND I have a young daughter who has no business looking at a near-porn photo. 

Is there a way to filter ads based on age or preference? 
I've lost a lot of respect for IMDB today. 
The Borat poster is more than allowed to be whatever it wants, 
but I shouldn't have it as the main page banner and a side banner 
as well when it's more than a "PG" rated picture 
and I'm on here to reference an actor from a totally different movie.
