Cowboy-Cruz, it isn't just a Village People B-side anymore.

I remember when this guy was naught but a lousy busker in Cincinnati.

Honestly, that guy lost a lot of ground when he started suing folks claiming the naked cowboy thing is trademarked. That's where you go from unique street performer to the magnificent naked douchebag.

I have not heard of that word before reading this story. Now I have see it twice. Crazy slow day at work as that is something exciting.

Never nudes?  There are dozens of us!

His manager in LA?

Jesus.

I remember when he was busking at Venice Beach and later saw him down in New Orleans during Jazz Fest and Mardi Gras prior to Times Square. Oddly, he ran a presidential campaign last year and is apparently a confirmed teabagger. He used to date this chick, who is one of his franchised and licensed 'naked cowboy/cowgirl' street performers.

Sandy Cane?

I remember meeting him with my wife and her friend back in 2002 in Times Square.  He refused to let me be in the picture they all took together because he didn't take pictures with guys.

Back in the 90's he was just some nut in Times Square we have hundreds of them. How can he get semi famous? The guy who begged for money and screamed had more of a personality.

The "naked" cowboy always pissed me off by never actually getting naked. Not even a Playgirl spread.

If he's actually collecting licensing fees because of the trademark thing, good for him for thinking of it. It's traditional for clowns to trademark their individual makeup design and this is kind of like that. He's got a schtick and if anybody thinks of a way to monetize it they better pay him.

Good lord! How will they raise the children?

Underpants = not naked.

Subby, for some reason your headline cracked me up! Thanks!

I honestly always wondered how this dude would perform like that in the freezing winter. Wow.

Registering a street performance act is like patenting being a mime. It has no actual original value, and contributes nothing to society as a whole, and serves to do nothing more than make the naked cowboy the street performer equivalent of a patent troll. I would say the same exact thing about a clown patenting being a clown, and especially trademarking their makeup (which, btw, I can't find any actual evidence of any successful attempts to patent - I welcome any citations however).

Let's re-cap here:
1) making a logo for your naked cowboy act and trademarking that - completely respectable.
2) trying to claim you are that logo and that your novelty act deserves a high level of professional protection  - not so much. It's not brilliant, it's just a slimy way to try to make money (like patent trolls) that most people won't do - not because it's a smart idea that they missed, but because it's an anti-competitive, underhanded way to doing business and most people are above doing it.

Oh how wrong you are!  He did a Playgirl spread under his given name back before he became famous as the "Naked Cowboy". I believe it features him on a sailboat, if I remember correctly.
