South Florida Flooring King Don Bailey Gets Naked Again

Well before Skrawberry and Tip Drill were getting "paid more than most doctors" to work the pole, Don Bailey stripped down to his underwear and became the face of quality, affordable flooring in Miami.

Four decades later, the charismatic businessman is still selling carpet -- and wearing the same pair of underwear.

To celebrate 40-years in the business, Bailey recently debuted a brand new ad with an almost-naked senior citizen. The model? Bailey, of course.

We caught up with the Miami flooring king at his Biscayne Boulevard store and talked flooring, women, and conservative backlash. Check out our video.
