BUSHWICK — Saturday Night Live parodied gentrification in Bushwick on Saturday with Kevin Hart, Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah playing three neighborhood dudes.

The men stand on a corner and look suspicious of people passing by, playing like they're in a gritty area where things are "getting crazy."

But once they start talking about their lives, the bougie side of Bushwick came out.

"Martha's" wasn't a name of a local, but of an artisanal mayonnaise spot where Hart's character had heard the garlic truffle "was a must try."

Thompson's character hung out with a woman named Carol, but it wasn't "Carol from the projects" but "Carol the chick that I nanny for."

And Pharoah's character's "parties" aren't ragers but wine and cheese painting parties.

"That last party was off the chain, bro," Pharoah said. "There was drinking wine. It was painting landscapes, barriers, fruit. You know what I'm saying?"
