Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - They call themselves the "Blinking Cowboys." You may have seen them in Fargo today in a sequence cowboy hat and airbrushed boots.

Their flashing, eye grabbing outfits are used to attract people. They are adventuring across the nation using country music to begin a conversation.

The two New York cowboys are trying to raise mental health awareness.

Matthew Prisco, Blinking Cowboys: “It's a cause that means a lot to my family. My mother had a very serious mental illness but it's something we felt very stigmatized by that I wish we would have been in a better position to have approached head on.”

Fargo is the 12th state they've stopped in. Their next adventure: South Dakota.
