Last year, the Grease actor reunited with another one of his Pulp Fiction co-stars for an advert for Capital One. He and Samuel L Jackson, who played fellow hitman Jules Winnfield in the Quentin Tarantino film, teamed up for a fun holiday commercial that saw him play Santa Claus.

Fans of Pulp Fiction were delighted as they spotted many references to the film in the clip, including a bolo tie in Santa's online shopping basket, a nod to the one John's character famously wore in the movie. Samuel also wore a T-shirt, which read "Happy Holidays 'With Cheese,'" paying tribute to the film's famous "Royale with Cheese" scene.
