Las Vegas got a good look at of Donald Trump in all his glory on Wednesday.
But it wasn't the real Donald Trump. It was one of the infamous Naked Trump statues.
Las Vegas marks the 8th state that the installation has visited so far.
The float's creators say the installation was inspired by the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale, "The Emperor's New Clothes."
They say it emulates the recent controversy surrounding Trump's campaign.

A Naked Trump statue was installed in Downtown Las Vegas in September. The statue was only on display for a couple of days though before it was vandalized and hauled away in a golf cart.

The statues were created by Las Vegas-based artist Joshua "Ginger" Monroe.
