The Naked Cowboy Will Help Give Away 20,000 Rolls to New Yorkers and Times Square Visitors

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today is National Toilet Paper Day and to celebrate, Charmin will be giving away 20,000 rolls in Times Square, starting at 1:00 PM ET. Times Square's own beloved performer and musician The Naked Cowboy will be on hand to help with the distribution.

"It takes a lot of confidence to stand here in my underwear everyday and I only trust Charmin Ultra Strong to help keep my whities tidy," said The Naked Cowboy. "I'm excited to partner with Charmin, on National Toilet Paper Day, and support their overall mission to help keep everyone's whities tidy."

In addition to distributing product, The Naked Cowboy using his famous guitar will be singing Charmin-themed songs about softness, strength, and keeping it clean in Times Square.

Charmin will be giving away Ultra Strong, Ultra Soft, and Basic toilet paper rolls via the Charmin Dump Truck, a branded industrial truck Charmin uses to make special TP deliveries.

This summer, Charmin visited beaches across the country providing beachgoers with a better bathroom experience - clean and fresh-smelling portable bathrooms stocked with amenities, attendants and plenty of Charmin toilet paper. The Charmin Relief mobile restrooms and Dump Truck's final stop will be in Daytona Beach, FL on Labor Day weekend.

Throughout the day, Charmin will be sharing and engaging with fans through social media. To learn more, visit Facebook.com/Charmin or @Charmin.
