It would have had to have been Monday, which is a holiday. Sounds like we have an underwear-wearin' fed-hatin' bitcoin cowboy.

ok, he's gonna do it tuesday morning. he will have an aspiring filmmaker buddy of his shoot it and put it up on youtube.

as for the costume, I think the main point isn't so much that it relates to bitcoin but rather that it gets people's attention. I mean isn't that the ultimate goal? A lot of these suggestions like 1's and 0's will have no meaning whatsoever for the avg wall streeter that will see it. When I spoke with him today, he wanted to wear a hip suit. He is a former male model after all so I'm sure he can pull it off and look good it in. This way, he'll look sharp, but it won't be in the typical wall street navy suit way but rather a funky, hip, colorful way.

Any ugly guy can wear a coin costume. We've got a former model here so let's leverage his skill set. Remember that it's new york and wall street, people here are huge snobs. We see crazy fools on the street all the time so we're desensitized to it. I think it will have a much bigger impact if he looks trendy rather than a wacko. I also think the message will get a lot more respect and people will be more likely to read the flyer if it came from a well dressed, trendy model than a nutcase is a crazy suit.

Sponsors, would this choice of wardrobe be all right with you?

I'll donate 50 BTC each to the first two people doing this if the do it on different days. If they do it on the same day they'll get 25 each.

I'm assuming someone will film this..

So, the guy is going to do it tomorrow.
Does he know bitcoin well enough to answer questions people might ask him?

This will be cool. Cheesy

his knowledge of bitcoin is minimal. I wish I could be there but I am busy at that time and I won't be able to make it. I just printed out a huge stack of flyers for him to pass out tomorrow so he's just gonna have to refer people to the flyer. He will let me know as soon as his buddy uploads the video to youtube and I'll post the link here.

I just confirmed that he did do it this morning and everything was recorded.

It was freezing cold this morning in NYC so he was unable to wear the originally planned suit which is fairly light. I think he just wore a standard coat and I hope this is all right. I also took the liberty to make double sided copies, the front had the document that jimbobway posted and the back, I took the info from bitcoinme.com and formatted it to fit on one page. Unfortunately, I don't think it will get any media coverage. We put out the word to some low level media contacts and tried our best. Hopefully we can plan better next time and get it on CNBC.

I am also looking forward to seeing the video and I will post the link as soon as he uploads it.

Done.    Smiley

me too.

He did a great and especially brave job.

He also gets my 30 BTC, despite the fact that he did notlink his outfit to the bitcoin idea.

Please let me know the address.


Still, my marketing experience tells me that next time, he needs more creativity about his look to create more awareness. I am happy to help planning the next event with a "concept" development and helping on preparing the plan.

Is it lawful to be in your underwear?

google times square naked cowboy. as long as he keeps certain areas covered, I don't see why it wouldn't be legal.

The underwear idea was brought up because it may generate more publicity. We have a few low level contacts in the media and we were trying to think of ways to get this picked up. He surely would prefer not to be in his underwear or any other ridiculous costume. However, we were hoping that a gimmick like that might make it more likely to get picked up by CNBC or the local NY news outlets. The community as a whole would benefit tremendously and he could earn a higher bounty for his contribution. We were thinking that we could leverage his assets and his prior experience as an underwear model, but if anyone has a better idea, we are certainly not locked in on that one option and are open to other suggestions.

We are shooting for next tuesday as a target date. We're looking to do all we can to get this picked up by the mainstream media and if we are successful, hopefully the community that will benefit from it will step up and fairly compensate this brave soul! Smiley

I happen to know the hottest male underwear super-model in the industry.  He also happens to be on the billboards over Times Square, in his underwear, for Target ads.   He also happens to be a HUGE supporter of Bitcoin, and anti-The-Fed movements, etc.     He also looks hotter than Marky Mark did in his Times Square (and fashion magazine) underwear ads for Calvin Klein...   (Remember those?)

I think my friend might be persuaded to do such a thing....  in only his underwear and sneakers showing off all his assets, abs, muscles, etc......  for the right bounty.

The press could be alerted in advance... and you guys are correct in your instincts....   Lunch hour crowds would definitely swarm like mad...  And this whole scene would be totally irresistible to the media.

We're talking about HUGE publicity.

Thoughts?

( Please email me or call me if it's urgent.  I'm finding less and less available time to catch up in the forums, sadly. )
