Naked Cow Folk In Times Square

25 Aug

Lots of people ask me about The Naked Cowboy and The Naked Cowgirl.

The Naked Cowboy is aka Robert Burck. You can learn more about him here at Wikipedia; in short, it says:

“… is an American street performer whose pitch is on New York City’s Time Square. He wears only cowboy boots, a hat, and briefs, with a guitar strategically placed to give the illusion of nudity.”

There are a number of women who call themselves The Naked Cowgirl.

Here’s a photo I took a few years ago of one, aka Sandy Kane:

Here’s her closeup:

and her other side:

I love the expressions of the onlookers!

There was an article in People Magazine 6-22-2010, from which I found this photo:

and this story about the ongoing “Times Square Showdown” between The Naked Cowboy and the various Naked Cowgirls. The story reports that Ms. Kane is “a veteran of New York’s comedy circuit who generated some heat after closing her act by setting her breasts on fire.”

Yikes!

Here is a different Naked Cowboy (aka Cindy Fox) that I have encountered:

and her closeup:

And, then there’s another woman who calls herself The Naked Cowgirl – Louisa Holmlund.

I don’t believe that I have encountered her; Here’s a screen grab from her website:

Lastly, there was a time a few years ago, when there was a Naked CowM&M on a Times Square animated billboard:

The Naked Cowboy didn’t want it thought that he endorses M&M’S candy.

Here’s what the Wikipedia site has to say about this:

Mars Incorporated created a short animation of the Blue M&M’s character playing a guitar while dressed in a white cowboy hat, cowboy boots and underpants on the electronic animation display that hangs outside the M&M’S store at Times Square. Burck, who owns registered trademarks to the Naked Cowboy name and likeness, filed a Trademark infringement lawsuit against Mars Incorporated on February 15, 2008…. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.”

(If any of you Naked People see this and don’t want to be featured here on my little old blog, please let me know and I will happily remove the content. Please don’t sue me!)

And, that’s about all I can tell you about The Naked Cow Folk in Times Square.

If anyone can share their encounters in the comments section, we’d love to hear them!

    I am Naked Cowgirl, Cindy Fox, shown here in a couple photos with the White bikini. I am the “Officially Licensed Naked Cowgirl” who is the only one who has signed a licensing agreement with the Naked Cowboy and followed through with the terms of it. I am also his significant other and have been traveling the world in various “Cowgirl” outfits with him before either of the other two cowgirls were here, although they played in Times Square before I did.
