HONOREE: Darryl Jenks & the Soul Glo Empire

3 03 2009

Film: Coming to America, 1988

Director: John Landis

Actor: Eriq la Salle

We’ve All Said It Before: “Just let your soul glo …just let it shine through ”



Soul Glo has reached super level status…its literally part of American culture

Everyone knows the name. Everyone knows the song. It is the symbol of Coming to America.  And it couldn’t have been better that the main nemesis was the heir to the Soul Glo Empire..and his last name was Jenks.

The singer for the commercial had a bit of Prince as he hit those high notes.  The two models in the commercial must have been the “Black Hair Product Models of ’88”. They look exactly like all the models I used to see on Dax, Scurl, Activator, Dark N Lovely, or whatever.  The male model does a great job @ 0:07, making it seem like he never knew his hair could be that damn greasy ..uh, I mean ‘oh so silky smooth’.

Darryl was also the perfect character as he cruised down the block in his red Camaro. But when he pulls in to the parking lot and re-ups on that activator, picks his juicy shag, and lays down his ‘stache…game over.

Get your shine on:

We’ve All Said It Before: “Sexual Chocolate!!!!”


Big round of applause for Jackson Heights own…Mr. Randy Watson!

We are proud to honor our own TechniColored Awards mascot.  He may be the reason we even started to do this. He is the epitome of a legendary TechniColored character… so we thank you Randy. We thank your baby blue suit. We thank you for kissing Rev. Brown. We thank those gold chains that rest on your chest shining through your open ruffle shirt.  We thank you for your role as Joe the Policeman in the “What’s going down?” episode of “Thats My Mama”. We thank the activator that keeps your curl oh so jherried out.

We also have to thank Whitney Houston for “Greatest Love of All”.  And for marrying Bobby Brown…the King of R&B (meaning Rocks and Blunts ~ Jamie Foxx)

And let’s not forget the band.  Thank you for the name Sexual Chocolate.  “They play so fine…don’t you agree?!”
