Kevin Hart named as Harlem in 2020 video

Harlem got a little group of friends this week as the creator of Girls Trip, the comedically brilliant film that reshaped box office expectations, appears to have paid a visit to his hometown.

In a video shot by a Twitter user, Kevin Hart’s voice is heard saying: “They call me Harlem! I’m from Harlem!”

He then goes on to say that, like most of the cameras that have followed him on his US tour, the person filming Harlem streets and stores did not know his face.

A New York media company named BuzzFeed invited Hart to share a video of him in “Harlem in 2020,” a bit of humour written and directed by Derek DiNardo, who created the film Girl’s Trip.

Knight confirmed his involvement on Monday, tweeting: “it’s true you heard it here first.”

Hart, who grew up in Philadelphia, is now at the centre of the Hollywood conversation for what he had to say about the Time’s Up movement in a viral New Year’s Eve video, in which he called the campaign “bullshit” and called for self-regulation to combat sexual harassment.

His detractors unleashed a barrage of criticism online – and even excoriated him at the Golden Globes on Sunday night. Hart used his performance to get a message to them in the form of a tune.

He performed at the annual awards show and also in L.A. later that night, for what was said to be an exclusive audience of adults.
