Samuel L. Jackson, a true master at the art of using curse words, has pledged to teach fans how to swear in 15 different languages — all they have to do is prove they intend to head to the polls this election season.

Jackson's pledge is part of the Good to Vote campaign, a nonpartisan initiative with HeadCount that sees public figures and celebrities challenging fans to vote in the November election.

The entertainers who participate offer their fans access to something unique (like a never-before-seen piece of content) when their followers hit a specific number of registrations.

Other celebrities who have participated include Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein (who reconnected for a Booksmart reunion on Instagram Live); Debra Messing, who pledged to reunite with her Mysteries of Laura costar Josh Lucas if 100 fans proved they would be voting; and JoAnna Garcia Swisher — who shaved husband Nick Swisher's head.

In a tweet Tuesday, Jackson said that if 2,500 fans prove that they'll be voting this year — by either registering, checking their registration or making a voting plan — he'll teach them how to swear (nearly) to their heart's content.

Jackson, who is not afraid to use colorful language to make his point, has a history of getting out the vote in a similar fashion. In 2012, the actor filmed a video encouraging voters to "Wake the f--- up," and get to the polls to support Barack Obama.

Jackson previously urged people to participate in a hotly-contested Georgia congressional race in 2017, recording a radio campaign ad referencing his Avengers character, Nick Fury.

"Remember what happened the last time people stayed home — we got stuck with Trump," Jackson said in that ad. "We have to channel the great vengeance and fury we have for this administration into votes at the ballot box."
