(July 21, 2015) – Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu stars in PETA’S newest public service announcement titled “How Long Can This NFL Player Tough It Out in a Hot Car?”

Mathieu says the purpose of the video is to illustrate what happens when you leave a dog in a car on a hot day.

Mathieu sat in a parked car on a 90-degree day with all the windows rolled up.

The temperature rose quickly inside the car, and it took a matter of minutes for it to reach 120 degrees.

“I seriously couldn’t imagine leaving my dog in a car like this,” said Mathieu.

A camera inside the car showed Mathieu sweating profusely, and he looked exhausted.
