Brett Kavanaugh and Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction

The Safdie brothers made that Pulp Fiction-Brett Kavanaugh mash-up

Samuel L. Jackson approves

This has been a dark, emotionally and mentally ravaging time, as the world watches a survivor, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, throw her life into chaos, to stand up against a powerful man who could ascend to one of the highest political U.S positions. 

A little bit of respite came from a now viral mash-up of Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, while accused of sexual assault and up for a Supreme Court position, with Samuel L. Jackson’s iconic monologue from Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 film Pulp Ficton.

In the scene, Jackson’s character, Jules Winnfield, addresses a character also named Brett. “Now, let me take a wild guess here – you’re Brett”. It then cuts to Kavanaugh at the hearing: “correct”.

“I got into Yale law school,” Kavanaugh continues. 

“Check out the big brain on Brett!” says Winnfield. You a smart motherfucker, that’s right… Looks like me and Vincent caught you boys at breakfast, sorry about that. Whatcha having?” 

“Beer. I still like beer,” the clip cuts to Kavanaugh once more.

“You mind if I have some of your tasty beverage to wash this down?” 

Speaking to Indiewire, Good Time and Heaven knows What directors Josh and Benny Safdie confirmed that it was them who made the mash-up video. 

Samuel L. Jackson has also responded to the video, “Funny as hell, but there’s nothing funny about his Lying Fratboy Ass!!!” he tweeted.

Kavanaugh’s bizarre references to his love of beer and jock lifestyle while at college as a means to humanise himself have been a point of humour through this hearing – Matt Damon appeared on Saturday Night Life to mock him.
