Robert Burck, known by most as The Naked Cowboy has announced his decision to run for mayor of New York City.
Claiming he “can do more with less”, The Naked Cowboy promised $10,000 loans for small companies, at no interest, call buttons for taxis at street corners and a wedding chapel in Times Square.
The Naked Cowboy has been hanging around Times Square, since 1998, dressed in nothing but a pair of white underwear, boots and a cowboy hat. Over time he became quite the celebrity, making appearances on hit TV shows like TRL and getting photographed with other celebrities.
He reportedly makes as much as $1,000 every day, collecting tips from passers-by in Times Square, working from 11 am to 2 pm.
