Saturday Night Live released a previously unaired skit on Monday that gave a parody of Guy Fieri the chance to respond to a scathing New York Times review of his Times Square restaurant.

Last week, Pete Wells posed a series of hypothetical questions to Fieri regarding Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar, including “And when we hear the words Donkey Sauce, which part of the donkey are we supposed to think about?” and “Why did the toasted marshmallow taste like fish?”.

He also remarked that the “well-meaning staff seems to realize that this is not a real restaurant.”

SNL’s Bobby Moynihan depicted Fieri reading the review for the first time, and gave a priceless reaction to the harsh words.

Moynihan acknowledged that nobody expects haute cuisine in tourist-packed Times Square, and that comparing his restaurant to fine dining establishments in New York “is like comparing apples and fat dirt.”

He also pointed joked that Fieri’s cuisine is best enjoyed after partaking in recreational drugs.
