Samuel L. Jackson Capital One Quicksilver Commercial

Capital One has gotten a new spokesperson to go along with Alec Baldwin and Jimmy Fallon…actor Samuel L. Jackson. And you better believe there are no motherf***in fees or hassles on this card! I bet they so wanted to use that line in the commercial but couldn’t. The did work a “damn” in there though.

Capital One has given in to the outrage over the use of the word, “damn” in their Quicksilver commercial with Samuel L. Jackson and have made a new more upbeat ad starring him.

    Capital One doesn’t want my business, I have a broader more vibrant vocabulary and don’t require cussing for emphasis.. Sorry statement on Cap1 interpretation on black culture.

    Hi Sharene,
    Thanks for the comment. Personally I don’t think it is Capital One’s take on black culture, but more Samuel L. Jackson’s persona. He is known for characters with a colorful vocabulary. I know there is a building outrage about this commercial though and fully respect your view.

  • Samuel L. Jackson is awesome and the commercial was fantastic up to the curse word. We are selling the card so language like that was not needed. Samuel’s voice is color enough to make people listen without the bad language. Please redo the commercial and take the bad word out. This commercial is being aired during the Today Show not appropriate for kids getting ready for school. The commercial as is would be great to air during theater previews for PG13 on up.

    Hi Douglas,
    Thanks for the comment. I can’t really argue about that point. I am sure it does air at some inopportune times. However, I think many of the news stories one might see during the Today Show are even more disturbing than the commercial. But, I definitely see your point. I have actually been surprised that someone hasnt spliced together their own version of this commercial making it even worse and using dialogue cut from some of his movies in it.

    • I don’t care for Samuel L. Jackson’s language. I is not necessary to sell any product. I have listened to him yell and holler in most of his movies. That is what he always does, and it’s a bit tiresome after a while. This next step I see coming is when he screams ” …every fu&%$#@ day.” Just as we heard “Big Poppy” use the F-word at Boston’s ball field during a live production with hundreds of kids in the stadium. Sometimes “celebs” think they can say anything without reproach. How’s about Capital One clean up their act and just leave the comedy to Alec Baldwin. He is so good at it.

    Why does your spokesperson feel the need to use the word “Damm” in the lasest TV Comercial ?

  • Josh says:

    I think that the people who object to the “D Word” (seriously its the D word now) are the type of people who raise their children in households that are oppressive and controlling. It’s not like Sammy dropped an F bomb or said the dreaded “S Word” which is said almost every night on network television. People in general need to relax. Being uptight causes cancer. I read that somewhere.

  • brian.lapoint@suddenlink.com says:

    My wife and I fast forward through this commercial. Do we really need to sink to this “persona”?

  • brian.lapoint@suddenlink.com says:

    This is the start. It will be the F-word if we allow this to continue. I don’t have a problem with curse words myself, it is just not necessary for something like a credit card commercial.

  • Rick says:

    I’m just one person, but have impressionable kids in my house. One thing I can tell you for sure, the Vikings , even Alec Baldwin stood a better chance of getting of getting Capital One in my wallet , but with Samuel L Jackson cursing at me……… What do I have in my wallet ? I can guarantee what won’t be in MY wallet. The Capital One Venture card !!!!!

  • admin says:

    Btw, to the comment about this commercial airing during the Today Show. I am currently watching the Today Show and in the story today about the Ohio State marching band and how they create their great halftime shows the reporter used the word “damn”, “Best damn band in the land”.

    • Mike says:

      I am confused as to why a company as well received and respected as Capital One, would think it wise to employee a confirmed hate monger and racist to push their new cards. I find their marketing strategy disturbing and offensive and from reading the on-line comments, it seems I am not alone. I have several Capital One accounts but am in the process of deleting them. They will no longer be “What’s In My Wallet”.

  • Karen C says:

    I’m very much in favor of freedom of speech, but adult language is not necessary in commercials. We choose what TV shows we let our families watch, but commercials are out of our control. We don’t get to choose which ones air on our TV. There needs to be more control commercial contents. I’m not a fan of the current “French the Rainbow” on the skittles commercial either.

  • Paige Hayden says:

    I love mr. Jackson’s movies & I’m glad I got to see the first commercial before dumb people forced the making of a second one. I’d rather hear the word “damn” in a commercial with my 4 kids around than the words “erectile dysfunction”.

    • admin says:

      lol Paige, Thanks for the comment. Very good point. “Damn” does bring up a lot less awkward conversations with kids. It is also something the have mostly heard, and worse at school or in their own circle of friends. Not to mention that on any given Sunday in churches all over there is talk of damning. I really didn’t see the big deal either.

    With what we now know about mortgage companies and investment firms racist behind the scenes treatment and clearly, purposely charging higher rates and failing investment profits, i am curious more than ever to know why he is allowing them to use him for promotion (actually, i can’t believe the gall a credit card company has to attempt to gain their communities business without so much as an acknowledgment that they will do much better than the indecent subprime standard their industry has been practicing). It would make my day if Mr. Jackson was able to do something with his earnings that pisses their industry off… Like promote Suze Orman’s card and it’s hopeful reforms!!!
