During his 11 seasons in the NFL, former Bengals and Patriots wide receiver Chad Johnson was known for his touchdown celebrations.

While he was in Cincinnati, the man formerly known as Ochocinco once pulled off a Riverdance, he wore a jacket that said 'Future Hall of Famer,' he proposed to a cheerleader -- and he even wrote a homemade note on poster board asking the NFL not to to fine him.

So what did Johnson do for his first touchdown in Canada?

He invented a new celebration. The hug-a-ref.

Johnson's first CFL score came on a 46-yard touchdown pass from former Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith. The score gave Johnson's Montreal Alouettes an early 7-3 lead over the Winnipeg Bombers.

You can see video of the touchdown here. However, unless you speak French, you probably won't understand what the announcers are saying.
