19 January 2016 Jay Garcia

This week’s YouTube clip is taken from the 1988 comedy Coming to America starring Eddie Murphy as the prince of Zamunda, a fictional wealthy African nation.

This week’s YouTube clip is taken from the 1988 comedy Coming to America starring Eddie Murphy as the prince of Zamunda, a fictional wealthy African nation.

In the scene below, Frankie Faison plays the landlord of a derelict apartment building in Queens, New York where Prince Akeem, Eddie Murphy’s character, has recently relocated to find a wife.

Prince Akeem wishes to find a down-to-earth bride by disguising his wealth and stature and seeking ‘meagre accommodation’.

The landlord highlights some of the features of the building, including a grotesque communal bathroom and a room where a homicide took place.
