New York City, New York, United States
For many years The Naked Cowboy has been a fixture in New York City’s Times Square.
He has made appearances in three music videos, including Cake’s “Short Skirt/Long Jacket”, Tyler Hilton’s “When It Comes”, and Nickelback’s “Rockstar”. Watch for his appearance in Rockstar at 3:23 below.
He earned a political science degree from the University of Cincinatti.
In 2009 he challenged Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the race for Mayor of New York City. At his announcement, The Naked Cowboy stated, “No one knows how to do more with less than yours truly, and that’s the kind of thinking I plan on sharing with my fellow New Yorkers when you elect me.”
He also challenged President Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election.
He is reportedly worth over $2.5 million.
During this photo shoot with Miguelito’s Little Green Car, the car fell onto the pavement and its windshield popped off. But no worries — the car motors on!
