Samuel L. Jackson Warburtons: Pulp Fiction star assumes the role of Jonathan Warburton in brand new advert
and live on Freeview channel 276
The advert that Jackson is starring in for the UK’s biggest bakery brand, Warburtons, lasts for around two minutes. He turns his hand to the top job in the Warburtons business, alongside the bakery’s real chairman, Jonathan Warburton.
The clip begins in Warburton’s headquarters, which in real life is based in Bolton, Lancashire. The actor takes over the office of the real chairman (mentioned above), much to the surprise of his assistant.
Dressed in the chairman’s iconic blue shirt and orange tie, the 74-year-old actor turns to the camera and in his familiar voice, says: “Hi, I’m Jonathan Warburton, chairman of the UK’s largest family bakery.”
Being one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, it’s probably a surprise to see Jackson in an advert. But, it has gone down well with viewers, with one saying: “Holy moly, Warburtons have knocked this clean out of the bakery. Park. Whatever.”
It clearly did the trick with many, as another added: “I’m a simple woman. Samuel L. Jackson says eat Warburtons toastie loaf and I listen. Please use this superpower for good, Mr Jackson.”
