Exhibitionists, get your nekked selves to Vienna. Kleider Bauer, an Austrian clothing chain, is holding a special promotion for nude shoppers only. That's right, consumers who strut into one of the chain's outlets without a stitch on will receive $385 worth of free clothing, according to a Reuters report.

Actually, not all nude shoppers will receive the loot -- just the first five naked customers to arrive at each Kleider Bauer store each day. And you can't just drop your clothes at the door and say a quick "guten Tag," either. You have to get as far as the checkout counter, where you will be greeted with a friendly smile (with possibly a wink-wink) and a towel with which to cover up. Then, if you're one of the lucky five, you will receive a voucher so you can buy new clothes for the trip home.

Sound enticing? The promotion runs through March 18, so hop on a plane, drop your duds and streak into the Kleider Bauer outlet nearest your hotel. Just be sure you're walking into the right place.
