If watching basketball player Chris Bosh saving the universe from the evil clutches of a demon Internet witch and avenging his father Star King is what you were searching for, look no further.
Scored by Limp Bizkit axeman Wes Borland, the "Adventures of Christopher Bosh in the Multiverse" cartoon is as weird as it can get. Featuring "an awkward, above-average power forward" going "on an Odyssean journey through neon-hued space" with the help of his friends - a multi-dimensional Mystic Wolfman Barfar and a fellow Miami Heat player Mike Miller, the animated film brings us 11 minutes of pure WTF.
Initially, the cartoon almost didn't happen, as NBA's team of lawyers requested a cease-and-desist order. But seeing how amazing it turned out, there's nothing to complain about here, right?
"You have not been granted any right whatsoever to use the Identity of Mr. Bosh," attorneys said in an official letter. "The unauthorized misappropriation of an individual's name or image for a commercial purpose is an infringement of his publicity rights, privacy rights and common law trademark rights. Such infringement subjects you, your employees and principals, and all individuals/entities associated with this activity, to serious liability."
Directed by Miami art collective Bleeding Palm, the clip should give you a proper dose of all the Friday fun you might need. Check it out below.
