I saw this commercial once when I was a kid, and never again. I've described it over the years, and no one else I knew had ever seen it. I was beginning to think I had hallucinated it, but Barry suggested I check You Tube...and here it is!
It's pretty much the way I remembered, except I remembered the young man snapping his fingers and saying, "Done forgot my Afro Sheen!" So maybe I misremembered or embellished over the years. But I sure do remember Frederick Douglass criticizing the young man's "natural."
