Tattooed New York Jets safety Brett Lockett joined up with PETA to take a stand against fur this winter. We salute any pro athlete who uses their celebrity for a good cause—especially if it involves them getting naked. (What, we can’t be lustful and civic-minded?)

Below, Lockett goes into some detail about his involvement and the campaign’s photo shoot. “What really hurt me was when I saw that an animal was still able to move and lift its head up after it was completely skinned,” says Lockett. “It brought tears to my eyes.” (Warning: The video does contain some graphic depictions of fur-industry atrocities.)
