NEW YORK -- Chad Ochocinco is baring it all -- almost -- in a new anti-fur ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Pro Bowl voting

The Pro Bowl ballots are open, so vote for your favorite players to earn a spot in the Jan. 30, 2011, event in Honolulu's Aloha Stadium.

Wearing nothing but a carefully placed football, the outspoken Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver has his tattoos on full display as part of PETA's "Ink, Not Mink" campaign. The ad will debut Friday.

Ochocinco calls himself an avid animal lover. He's certainly comfortable with exposure, with his reality television shows, frequent tweets and "Dancing With the Stars" appearance.

PETA says the football in the photo is made from synthetic material, not leather.
