Just because Kanye West is a new dad doesn’t mean he’s forgotten about his other creation coming out this week: Promotion for West’s Yeezus album continued Saturday with a listening party in Los Angeles and another short film projected onto buildings across the country.
Rumors about the film swirled last week, and they turned out to be (frighteningly) true: West cast Kourtney Kardashian baby-daddy Scott Disick as Patrick Bateman from American Psycho, with another Kardashian regular, Jonathan Cheban, playing the Jared Leto to Disick’s Christian Bale. The pair re-create the movie’s infamous Huey Lewis scene, but this time, they’re discussing how Kanye’s earlier stuff was “too hip-hop,” as the Yeezus track “New Slaves” plays in the background.
Check it out in the video below:
Of course, Huey Lewis himself just did his own version of the scene for Funny or Die in April, so the 2000 film is clearly having a moment. If you need a refresher, here’s the original, NSFW scene starring Bale and Leto.
