Must Watch: Huey Lewis Spoofs ‘American Psycho’ With Weird Al Yankovic
  |  @   |  

Arguably the most memorable scene in the psychological thriller American Psycho was when star Christian Bale’s Patrick Bateman character gives a co-worker (played by Jared Leto) a little lesson on the band Huey Lewis and the News…right before butchering him with an axe (maybe, we think). Gruesome I know.

Now, thanks to Funny or Die, a video has come along to blow minds. Layers of parody dancing gleefully together around a slice of paradoxical cinema. Does that make sense? Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to. Because it sounds awesome.

Be sure to check it out below.

In the video, as you’ll see, Huey Lewis himself plays the Bateman character, while Weird Al Yankovic—the king of comedic pop music covers, who of course has spoofed a little Huey Lewis in his day—plays the drunken victim. The result is basically just a commercial for the 30th anniversary of the News’s album Sports, but, as Patrick Bateman himself would tell you, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that…and that he has to return some video tapes.

  1. Poor Weird Al!!! Great parody, loved it. The streaming quality at Funny or Die still sucks, though.
