Brian Boitano: (Asked if the creators of the movie South Park: Bigger, Larger, and Uncut had to get his permission to use the song "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" in the film)
No. In fact a few years later I had to ask for their permission. When I first heard about the song, I thought 'Oh, no...' knowing how they parody other celebrities, so I ran right out and got the cd. I listened to it and thought, 'Wow, that's not bad at all, its kinda nice, I guess they like me.' A few years later I wanted to sell some t-shirts to help raise money for charity and wanted to print 'What Would Brain Bonitano Do?' on them. I contacted the writers and got their permission to use my own name.
