A familiar fixture in Times Square, even in cold weather!

I have another from this same afternoon, head-to-toe with him looking right into the camera, but I liked this one with the taxi moving past.

Here's what he looks like from the back:

I should dig up some older film photos of him and do a comparison -- I think he's a lot more buff these days.

Thanks, Michelle. Yes, Robert Burck -- aka The Naked Cowboy -- sued Mars, Inc. $6 million for trademark infringement. He felt the video billboard in Times Square, which showed a blue M&M dressed like a cowboy (in underwear?), too closely resembled his own image. I'm not sure if he won a cash settlement, but Mars did pull the ad.

Funny! I think I read about this guy online not too long ago. Can't remember if he was thinking (or joking) about suing someone for copyright infringement. Someone was using his likeness or something. Gotta love the big city - so many photo opps!
