(Lancaster) -- Actor Samuel L. Jackson is starring in a crowdfunding campaign video for the Lancaster County company that makes the Kangol hats he's known for wearing. 

In the video, the famously foul-mouthed actor wears a T-shirt that says, "Motherfunder.''  

The Bollman Hat Company wants to raise $100,000 to go toward moving production of its popular hats from China to its Adamstown headquarters. 

The move could cost at least $1 million.

The company received $160,000 in state grants and tax credits in August.

It has already spent $350,000 of its own money. 

Jackson is one of several celebrities, including Madonna and Brad Pitt, who wear the company's Kangol wool cap called the "504.''  

Bollman President and CEO Don Rongione says Jackson agreed to do the video for free.
