Kanye West Recreates ‘American Psycho’ With Scott Disick For ‘Yeezus’
The video dropped at West’s album listening party in Los Angeles last weekend and shows Disick, who is Kim’s sister Kourtney’s partner, portraying the film’s main character, Patrick Bateman, whom he admittedly does resemble IRL.
Watch below, but be warned that it’s NSFW and features violence and strong language.
Also appearing in the clip is Keeping Up With the Kardashians regular Jonathan Cheban.
In the video, Disick takes a cue from the film’s original “Huey Lewis and the News” scene to express his feelings on Yeezus to a lounging Cheban (who playsAmerican Psycho character Paul Allen).
“It should be obvious by now that ‘New Slaves’ is the undisputed masterpiece ofYeezus,” he says as he paces around a replica set of the original flick. “A song so catchy, most people won’t even remember the lyrics. Then there’s the song ‘I Am A God.’ The title practically speaks for itself.”
He also references West’s recent New York Times interview, in which the rapper calls himself the Steve Jobs of “Internet, fashion and culture,” with Disick also throwing out comparisons to “Jesus, Hitler and Walt Disney.”
He pops in the CD and viewers can hear a sampling of Yeezus beats behind Disick’s increasingly distressed commentary as he dons a raincoat, takes a shot and murders Cheban with an ax (and a little help from a couple gallons of fake blood).
Gratuitous murder scene aside, Yeezus is available now.
