Think you missed something while celebrating the holidays? We can guarantee that you did. A naked football player named Bret Lockett speaking out against fur for the sake of the furry animals who want to keep theirs.

The Former New England Patriots player took part in PETA’s campaign “Ink not Mink” and stripped down to reveal…as much as a man can possibly reveal without getting a triple x rating.

PETA writes about his involvement, “Bret challenges his fans to watch PETA’s undercover video footage of fur farms, just like he did, and wants everyone to know that for every fur coat, collar, or piece of trim, millions of foxes, minks, coyotes, rabbits, and even cats and dogs are violently bludgeoned, electrocuted, drowned, or strangled with wire nooses.”

As for how it made him feel to see such horrors, Lockett said, “It brought tears to my eyes.”

Watch the video below to see more footage of the shoot and Lockett’s feelings about fur.
