Samuel L. Jackson isn’t the only motherf—er in Hollywood who has mastered the F-bomb. At the start of Netflix’s trailer for upcoming comedy series “History of Swear Words,” the show’s perfectly cast host Nic Cage just screams “F—!” literally at the top of his lungs.
Looks like a pretty fun gig.
In addition to all the jokes, the trailer for “History of Swear Words” pitches us a perfectly good application for the stuff that got our mouths washed out with soap as a kid. (Yes, that really happened, millennials.)
Watch the video above — the Ice Bucket Challenge just got a bit more manageable.
The “loud and proudly profane” series, as described by Netflix, “explores the origins, pop culture-usage, science and cultural impact of curse words. Through interviews with experts in etymology, pop culture, historians and entertainers, the six-episode series dives into the origins of ‘F**k,’ ‘Sh*t,’ ‘B*tch,’ ‘D**k,’ ‘Pu**y’ and ‘Damn.’”
“History of Swear Words” will premiere on Netflix on Jan. 5, 2021.
Guest stars for the series include Joel Kim Booster, DeRay Davis, Open Mike Eagle, Nikki Glaser, Patti Harrison, London Hughes, Jim Jefferies, Zainab Johnson, Nick Offerman, Sarah Silverman, Baron Vaughn and Isiah Whitlock Jr. (we’re pretty sure we know which word he wants to talk about).
