As part of the promotional run for Night School, Kevin Hart made an appearance on a one-hour special for MTV’s Ridiculousness, appropriately dubbed "Hartdiculousness," where he spoke about one of the film’s most important lessons: the power of positive reinforcement.
“I thought that I had learning herpes. It’s just not gonna go away. This stuff is gonna keep poppin’ up,” Hart says about his Night School character. “But [Tiffany Haddish’s character] was like, ‘No, you don’t.’ But the best way to deal with somebody that’s suffering from the disabilities that I was suffering from is to constantly reinforce.”
Hart then tried to apply this reinforcement technique while watching clips of people doing ridiculously dumb things: a girl inhaling an oil-absorbing sheet; an inebriated woman trying to order drinks at a DJ booth; and a car salesman getting his head stuck in an automatic van door.
“He’s going off the cuff,” Hart said about the man’s sales tactic. “He’s a car salesman, but it’s been a while … his numbers are dropping.”
You can watch the exclusive Ridiculousness clip above. The one-hour special will air this Sunday (Sept. 23) on MTV at 8 p.m., and Night School will hit U.S. theaters Sept. 28.
“My frustration with Katt Williams comes from [...] You keep pointing at, ‘Hollywood, Hollywood, this, the white man, this, this, and this.’ When do you take responsibility for your actions?” Hart said about his fellow comedian. “You had the shot. You were the guy. You were set up to be the star. You didn't show up to work, you fucked off promo shoots, you fucked off the promo fucking trips that they had set up for you. You became a risk to the studios, which is why the studios stopped fucking with you.”
