The great minds over at the Bosh Film Festival (organized by theBorscht Film Festival
) received a very funny letter on the subject of a very famous person yesterday. Well, it was more from his lawyers than from the man himself. It was a cease-and-desist notice about using the name of the inspiration for their celebration, Miami Heat player Chris Bosh.

We spoke with Ronnie Rivera, creator of the event's flagship film, Adventures of Chris Bosh in the Multiverse, yesterday, and he told us Chris Bosh got in touch with him to create the film in the first place. WTF, Chris?! Well, wait, apparently, it was a fake Chris Bosh. How many Chris Boshes are there out there, and who would do such a thing?
Though Bleeding Palm's Ronnie Rivera told MNT that the show will go on, we were still concerned about the fate of the film, one that, as Heat fans, fans of Borscht Film Festival, and fans of Ronnie Rivera's work, we must see on the big screen at the Miami Art Museum!
"The multiverse is a hypothetical set of all possible universes including our own. So, it's anything that can exist and does exist," says Quinn enigmatically. "Everything that Ronnie and we are doing needs to be seen through the context of the multiverse. Therefore, everything that Ronnie says, and is in the cartoon, is absolutely true in the multiverse." Trippy, but hey, hard to argue against.
They have spoken to a lawyer, though, one associated with Legal Art, an organization that offers artists free or cheap legal advice. Quinn says, "I really don't think Bosh is going to sue this little nonprofit for a free event at an art museum," then adding, "and if he does, it's because he really is a disgraced star prince from another dimension."
