In 1995, fresh off the success of Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino guest starred on an episode of Margaret Cho’s short-lived sitcom All-American Girl. The episode, titled “Pulp Sitcom,” is a pretty blatant Pulp parody, rife with double entendres and “wink wink” references. In an instance of art imitating life, Tarantino plays the role of Desmond — Cho’s love interest and travelling video salesman who hawks his wares from a mysterious, glowing suitcase (Get it?). There’s also a more family friendly version of the “hypo through the heart” scene, as well as the obligatory diner dance sequence. At one point, Tarantino even does his best Christopher Walken impersonation. We’re not kidding.

It’s all very 90s, very camp, and supremely bizarre. Watch it above, and enjoy.
