The Naked Cowboy
When I was in NYC last year, this guy was the first thing my eyes landed on when I emerged from the bus station. Apparently, the Naked Cowboy makes a killing playing the guitar in Times Square, year round, while partially nude. People pay upwards of $5 to have their picture taken with him and there's a comic "strip" out there along with a line of official Naked Cowboy merchandise. He's even a regular guest on the Howard Stern show.
According to his website, the name is copyrighted and he's been arrested over 40 times for stunts around the world. And to think I thought the Naked Cowboy was just a kooky mofo that runs around in his undies for pocket change. He's actually a kooky mofo that runs around in his undies for thousands of dollars a day.
