Chad Ochocinco isn't known for subtlety. The guy can't even catch lunch at the relatively low key David's Cafe II on South Beach without a healthy helping of ridiculous. Yeah, the Miami native plowed through the back streets of South Beach in a giant gas-guzzling "super-truck" this weekend. The thing apparently only gets 6.9 miles per gallon and took six months to customize.
The truck may have special "Ochocinco" badges, but Chad himself has announced he's going back to his birth name: Chad Johnson.
