Naked Cowboy threatens to sue Naked IndianJul-09-2012
A shirtless showdown in Times Square has the Big Apple's infamous Naked Cowboy pitted against a feathered foe - the Naked Indian.
The Cowboy - who usually basks in the attention of tourists watching him play guitar in a 10-gallon hat and his skivvies - has been forced to watch his rival directly across the street on Broadway corral gawkers with his headdress and drum.
"I've been here . . . 365 days, everyday for 13 years and change," said the Cowboy, Robert Burck. "He's only been here 16 days and missed two already."
Though the Cowboy insisted there is no bad blood between them, he threatened a lawsuit unless the Indian joins his company, Naked Cowboy Enterprises, a franchise that includes Naked Cowgirls and other entertainers.
The Indian, whose real name is Adam David, said Times Square doesn't have enough gimmicks - and then threw down some fighting words.
"No one was doing an Indian," said the aspiring actor. "(The Cowboy and I) have a word-of-mouth contract. This country was built on handshakes and word-of-mouth agreements. I don't lose, I always win."
