When posing for a Tacky Tourist Photo, it is usually customary to embrace the quirky statue or mascot as if you are best friends.
Yet, there is something rather skeevy about getting intimate with a Naked Cowboy you just met.
Enter the brilliance of Erik, who pensively looks to the heavens, so immersed in thought that he almost doesn’t even notice the scantily-clad gent in front of the Marriott. There’s now a proven method to pose with people when getting too close would be embarrassing or downright unhygienic.
On a side note, TTP has been at the forefront of insightful Naked Cowboy coverage rivaling the New York Post, the NY Daily News and Gawker. We’ve faithfully covered the Naked Cowboy for President campaign, the legal battle with the Naked Cowgirl and her common bond with Lady Gaga.
We’re depending on Erik to covertly capture the next chapter.
