[WATCH] What Happened to New York City's Naked Cowboy?

If you've walked through Times Square in New York City, you've probably seen the Naked Cowboy, aka Robert J. Burck. For over 20 years, Robert has been singing and playing guitar on 46th Street and Broadway in his painted underwear, cowboy boots and hat. His mission is simple, entertain as many people as possible and become rich and famous no matter what. But having just turned 50 in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, some people question how much longer he can keep this up.

Robert made headlines recently after being arrested in Daytona, FL for aggressive panhandling where police body cams caught him using homophobic and racial slurs. But in Robert's mind, all press is good press. Through rain, shine, controversy and Covid-19, Robert J. Burck is committed to being the Naked Cowboy.
