    He stopped traffic, literally, but that man dancing naked on a billboard along John Carpenter Freeway Friday afternoon was not part of a advertising stunt.

    Some questioned if Boost Mobile put the guy up to it since it was their "more coverage" billboard he picked for his billboard boogie.

    "While Boost Mobile didn't have anything to do with the man on the billboard, it did spark our thought process into doing something in the Dallas community," Boost said in an email response to NBCDFW.com.

    We had a feeling the mobile company had nothing to do with the man on the billboard since it appeared he was under the influence of something, and police confirmed it.

    "Obviously, he wasn't in his right mind," said Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse, with the Dallas Police Department. "No human being is going to climb a billboard naked and prance around and conduct an orchestra like he was doing."

    Boost is taking advantage of the situation, starting up, appropriately enough, a clothing drive.

    The first 100 people to donate a new article of clothing will get a free air-time voucher on their new or existing Boost Mobile account. Those interested in donating to the clothing drive must drop off their donation at the Boost Mobile store on the northeast corner of Forest and Marsh lanes in North Dallas between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m on Thursday, March 25.

    We give Boost props for capitalizing on the guy picking their billboard for his naked dance.
