The star promised to use his unique set of linguistic skills to good use if enough of people went online to check their registration or register to vote.
When it comes to swearing, no one does it like the certified badass Samuel L. Jackson. The star who made history with the line "I'm tired of these motherf**ing snakes on this motherf**ing plane," is now using his unique set of linguistic skills to encourage fans to make their voices heard this November. Jackson on Monday put forward a rather unusual yet incredibly enticing offer for his fans on social media when he promised to teach them how to swear in 15 different languages if enough of them went online to check their registration or register to vote.
"Listen up. If 2500 of you head to my Headcount.org link to make sure you're #GoodToVote, I will teach you to swear in 15 different languages," the actor announced in a video message, which racked up more than 2,600 likes and more than 44,900 views in less than an hour. The exciting announcement followed a teaser tweet from the Pulp Fiction star earlier in the day, which said: "Nov. 3rd Will be here before you know it! Go to Headcount.org to check your voter registration status or register to vote! Go now and you may get a very special "tutorial" from me! Every vote Counts!"
Nov. 3rd Will be here before you know it! Go to https://t.co/wyyDD5xIGs to check your voter registration status or register to vote! Go now and you may get a very special "tutorial" from me! Every vote Counts! https://t.co/RUhqCjVJrd— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) September 14, 2020
Upon visiting the Headcount link, people are met with three different voting actions to choose from. These include registering, checking their registration, and a third option providing information about voting methods and polling places to make their "vote plan." Jackson—who is well-known as the narrator of the book Go The F**k To Sleep and its sequel Stay The F**k At Home—held his end of the bargain after his fans came through in droves. With 2500 people taking action in next to no time, the actor was back the following day with another video message that featured the promised multilingual swearing lesson.
Checked, yes, still registered to VOTE! Actually, I check at least once a week.🤷🏾♀️— Ancientone (@Ancient06141713) September 15, 2020
Like to take you up on your offer, but I'll pass on the languages. I'm way to old to learn to swear in any language, let alone 15! But, sounds as if it would be a whole lot of fun!☺️ pic.twitter.com/O5oY94y76q

Rocking a face mask that said "Vote" and a black t-shirt that read "Your Voice Matters," Jackson said in the video that his fans, "showed up and showed out" for his voter initiative. "You guys showed up and blasted through our Voter Action Goal for #GoodToVote! So as promised, here's some Cussin' 15 ways to go! Thanks for getting involved and make sure to vote on November 3rd!" he captioned the video tutorial. Beginning his masterclass in how to swear like a pro, Jackson said: "Now, it's time for me to hold up my end of that bargain. Let's learn some cussin' in 15 different languages."
You don't have to teach me I got that covered. All I want from you is to cuss Donald Trump out one good time. I have been telling my friends and family if they had one wish who would they choose. I chose you.— Synitha Walker (@owwife) September 15, 2020
I am registered! I will be 65 in two months, and I have voted in every election since I was old enough to vote. I have also applied for my absentee ballot. It will be mailed out in Oct, and I will take it to the clerks office the day I get it!! I refuse to miss voting this time!— Melinda Piorkowski (@Melindasdogs) September 15, 2020
Done.....✅ twice to make double sure. I’ll tweet and show you I’m the first person in line for early voting on Oct. 13. in my hometown in Texas.— Danetta Clayborn (@Prinessie) September 14, 2020
Holding a series of cards with swear words in various languages, the 71-year-old kicked things off with "Zoaz Popatik Hartzera" in Basque, reports Daily Mail. He followed it up with "Dit Me May" in Vietnamese and a few more in Ukrainian, Swahili, and Nepali. Jackson's lesson also included curse words in Jamaican Patois, Icelandic, and Māori before he closed the session with expressions in Haitian Creole, Bemba, Czech, Esperanto, Catalan, Brazilian Portuguese, and Thai. "Pass this on, make sure you get other people to register to vote and make sure you go out and vote too," the actor concluded.
The Django Unchained star, who has never been one to mince words when it comes to his feelings about Donald Trump, took a swing at the president on Friday during his appearance as guest host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Listing some of the scandals Trump has sparked in just the last week, Jackson asked: "Who can still be voting for this guy after all the stuff that has gone down on his watch?" Cutting to a spoof campaign ad detailing the possible side effects of reelecting Trump, he added: "The fact of the matter is that Donald Trump is dangerous for our country."
