Winston Wolf – Pulp Fiction-inspired Direct Line “Break In” TV advert

winston-wolfWinston Wolf is the character portrayed by Harvey Keitel (right) towards the end of Quentin Tarantino‘s classic second movie, Pulp Fiction, which also starred John Travolta, Uma Thurman and Samuel L Jackson.

Winston, aka “The Wolf”, fixes problems. It’s a contraversial choice, for sure, since in Pulp Fiction, he was telling Jules and Vincent to scoop up the blood-soaked body and brain of a young man called Marvin, just in the middle of having a discussion about how the two of them managed to cheat death, despite a hidden shooter coming out from the back room at the last minute and using a ‘hand cannon’ to try and blast the pair into next week, as you can see here .

And I used to be with Direct Line, but every year I shop around for new insurance, and Direct Line no longer put themselves on comparison sites, and every time I used to use this company, they always cost more than some of the rest, so that’s why I no longer check their website.

Still this is a superb advert in which he tells them how they can prevent a further break-in. I’m curious, though, as to why the couple have pictures of their items which have been stolen. Who takes a picture of standard household items?

And it’ll be interesting to see if Winston Wolf returns in more adverts once the Daily Mail have had a moan. Check it out below:
