The campaign notes the $75 million asset credit union's free checking has no service charge, no hidden fees, free debit card with cash-back incentives and no annual fee, free e-statements, unlimited check writing, and free online banking and bill pay.

The campaign features a hairless cats and dogs in YouTube videos, print ads and billboard ads. 

To watch the "Feel Good Naked--Get Naked Checking" and "Nothing Wrong With Naked--Get Naked Checking" videos, use the YouTube links.

In the first, a man walking his "naked" dog gets a series of  jaw-dropping and second-takes from bystanders as they pass by. A second video features the man in a bathrobe searching empty drawers, shelves and closets for clothes while the dog looks on. Finally the man goes outside and finds a trail of clothes to the dog house.

The campaign also asks members to "Get Naked & Give Back," by raising funds for the Kansas Humane Society. Members can donate items on the society's wish list. For every item donated, Central Star will give $1 to the Humane Society, up to $2,000.
