Fruit of the Loom’s new boxer briefs go on sale at retailers including Target (TGT), Walmart (WMT) and Kmart (SHLD) this month.

Robert Burck has become an iconic part of Times Square. The musician plays a guitar while wearing only a cowboy hat, boots and underwear.

Fruit of the Loom will be handing out samples of its new boxer briefs and coupons as the promotion kicks off on Tuesday. Overhead, a billboard will announce that: “Even the Naked Cowboy has changed his underwear.”
