A British driving instructor who uses Samuel L. Jackson's name to promote his business was stunned to receive a personal phone call from the Hollywood actor himself.

Samuel Jackson has become an Internet sensation after placing a learner 'L' plate in the middle of his title to boost interest in his driving school in Southport, England.

The stunt caught the attention of U.K. Tv host Graham Norton, who rang the instructor last month (Jun14) while recording an episode of his talk show with the Pulp Fiction star as a guest.

Norton passed the phone to Jackson, who ribbed the driving tutor for stealing his famous name.

The British namesake explains, "I spoke to Graham Norton first, and we had some general chit chat about the driving school, then he passed me over to Samuel L. Jackson.

"It was all very light hearted, I think it was a little bit of a stocking filler. He didn't seem upset about me using the name and he was a nice guy."

The segment was cut out of the Tv show, which aired in Britain last month (Jun14).
