To encourage voting, Samuel L. Jackson promised his fans that he would teach them how to swear.
Over the years, Samuel L. Jackson has made an interesting reputation for himself as people have praised his talent when it comes to swearing. Therefore, according to the Daily Mail, the star is now ‘using his unique set of linguistic skills’ to encourage voting. On September 14, the 71-year-old actor uploaded a video on Twitter, saying that he would teach his fans to swear in fifteen different languages if 2,500 of his 8.5 million followers registered to vote:
Listen up – If 2500 of you click a voting action below to make sure you’re #GoodToVote, I will teach you to swear in 15 different languages. Go to https://t.co/nVk8WzUm8N now! pic.twitter.com/g4eUmHwuP9

Unsurprisingly, people quickly followed the actor’s instructions and he released a video teaching them to swear.
The star’s plan worked perfectly as his fans took action and replied to his video with tweets proving that they have registered to vote. As a result, on Tuesday, Samuel L. Jackson gave the lesson he had promised, saying that: “Now, it’s time for me to hold up my end of that bargain”. In the video, he held a series of papers with curse words written in 15 different languages: Basque, Vietnamese, Ukrainian, Swahili, Nepali, Jamaican Patois, Icelandic, Maori, Haitian, Bemba, Czech, Esperanto, Catalan, Brazilian Portuguese, and Thai. He concluded the video saying: ‘Pass this on, make sure you get other people to register to vote and make sure you go out and vote too’.

Nevertheless, some also critiqued the fact that there are people who would register to vote for the sole purpose of learning how to swear in 15 different languages:
I certainly hope people are not voting because they get to learn how to curse in 15 languages. This post just shows what the problem is. Get some dignity in yourself and others. Who would even do this. Pathetic.
