NAKED COWBOY SUES M&M'S
Thursday, February 14, 2008
If you've been to Times Square in New York City recently, you've seen the Naked Cowboy. He dances and plays the guitar in the middle of the city wearing a cowboy hat, boots and underwear. Now, the Naked Cowboy (aka Robert Burck) is taking the maker of M&M's to court. He's suing for $6 million, claiming the company dressed up an animated blue M&M as the Naked Cowboy without his permission. The Naked Cowboy ad is displayed just steps away from where the Naked Cowboy performs, at the M&M's store in the heart of Times Square.
