Apparently, the Naked Indian isn’t welcome in Times Square. So says the Naked Cowboy.
Time magazine’s online News Feed reported that the well-known Naked Cowboy is going to sue the Naked Indian, Adam David.
The two were pictured posing together inthis ICTMN piece published in early July.
ICTMN reported then that Naked Cowboy Robert Burck wanted David to join his company. News Feed’s Judith Welikala opened the story about the suit with this one liner:
New York, get ready for an epic game of naked cowboys and indians.
Street performer Robert Burck — known to tourists as the Naked Cowboy — has turned his ability to sing country tunes while wearing nothing but a hat, boots, briefs and a strategically placed guitar into a cottage industry. He’s even launched a presidential campaign, telling TMZ that he is “very conservative” and has an “unapologetic commitment to our borders, our language and our culture.”
Burck is therefore less than pleased to have his territory invaded, and has accused newcomer Adam David, a.k.a. the Naked Indian, of stealing his act.
“I’ve been here [in Times Square] 365 days, every day, for 13 years and change,” Burck told the New York Daily News. “He’s only been here 16 days and missed two already.”
Burck wants David to join his company, Naked Cowboy Enterprises, which includes variants on the “Naked” theme — or else face a hefty lawsuit.
Such threats don’t seem to have fazed David, who claims to have a “word-of-mouth contract” with his rival.
