A recent Saturday Night Live skit which made fun of celebrity chef Guy Fieri didn't make it on air. However, the spoof by SNL's Bobby Moynihan with a flaming shirt has been posted on the NBC site.

Fieri has been in the news recently when he responded to a New York Times review of his 'Guy's American Kitchen and Bar' restaurant in Times Square. The New York Times article which was published last week started with reviewer Pete Wells asking, "GUY FIERI, have you eaten at your new restaurant in Times Square?... Did it live up to your expectations?"

Wells bashed the restaurant and food in his review throughout the piece. "Tell me, though, why does your kitchen sabotage even its more appealing main courses with ruinous sides and sauces? Why stifle a pretty good bison meatloaf in a sugary brown glaze with no undertow of acid or spice? Why send a serviceable herb-stuffed rotisserie chicken to the table in the company of your insipid Rice-a-Roni variant?"

The unimpressed celebrity chef appeared on the Today Show and accused the reviewer of having a double agenda. Fieri said on the show: "To me, it's impossible to come in and have a dining experience and have every single thing is wrong, unless you come in with a different agenda and you want to sensationalize something and you want to blow it out of the water. It's a great way to make a name for yourself- go after a celebrity chef that's not a New Yorker that's doing big concept in his second month. Great way to hit it."

The spoof shows Moynihan mimicking Fieri with Seth Meyers. 'Fieri' seems happy in the skit until he looks at the review of his restaurant. "What is that? Oh my god. I've never felt sicker in my life, Seth," replied the fake Fieri. "Keep in mind; all I eat is bacon bombs, which is bacon wrapped in dynamite."

Meyers asked, "It is the New York Times, you didn't think they'd like your restaurant, did you?"

"No, but did they think they would like it?" he replied. "I wear flames on my shirt and I don't bleach my roots. That doesn't exactly scream haute cuisine. It screams look out, a maniac is about to hit you with a face full of donkey sauce."
