BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Former LSU Tiger football star and Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu partnered with PETA to produce a PSA about leaving animals in hot cars.
Mathieu, known as the "Honey Badger," sat in a car on a 90 degree day. After two minutes, Mathieu tried to fan himself off as the interior temperature of the car reached 97 degrees.
Mathieu remarked that what he was experiencing was what a dog feels like when their owner would be "in a grocery store." Four minutes in, the internal temperature of the car hits 105 degrees. Mathieu gets even sweatier as he says that he "couldn't imagine" leaving his dog in a hot car, as they are like family members.
At six minutes, the internal temperature of the car hits 113 degrees, and then 120 degrees at eight minutes into the experiment. Mathieu then gets out of the car, exasperated and drenched in sweat as a message warning about the dangers of leaving a pet in a hot car plays on screen.
