How to quickly cool a car that was parked under the sun

Not mecha related, just wanted to share this little life hack. Also, I can confirm that this method of cooling a hot car compartment works because I tried it last week when my car was parked under the sun for about an hour. I think I saw this video in reddit but I can't seem to find the link anymore.

You cool the car by first opening up the front passenger side window then using the driver side door as a pump, open and close it a couple of times. It works because the driver side door is like a vacuum pump that sucks the cool air from the passenger side window inside the car while letting the hot air inside out.

It has to be noted that people in the parking lot who see you doing this and don't understand what you're trying to do might think you're crazy *snicker*
