Samuel L. Jackson is known as the most eloquent of those who might say certain four-letter words, and thus a Los Angeles news anchor should count his blessings, as despite Jackson going off on him on Monday, he managed to keep it all clean. The embedded video is from KTLA via TMZ.

Jackson was appearing on KTLA on Monday bto promote his new movie, "Robocop." Before getting into the heart of the matter, entertainment anchor Sam Rubin decided to ask Jackson about his new Super Bowl commercial.

Unfortunately for Rubin, Jackson had no Super Bowl ad. Instead, Rubin was thinking about Laurence Fishburne's Super Bowl commercial. And that is when Jackson went off on Rubin.

“What Super Bowl commercial?” Jackson asked.

It was hilarious, as Rubin kept trying to redirect things to the movie, while at the same time apologizing. Jackson, however, wouldn't let him, as he continued to say "I'm not that (black) guy, or that (black) guy, and on and on."

“You’re as crazy as the people on Twitter, I’m not Laurence Fishburne. We all look alike? We’re all black and famous.”

“You don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne?”

“Really? Really? I’m the other guy. There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial.”

Watch it.
