This is how fathers like Kanye West and Scott Disick celebrate the weekend. The two filmed an American Psycho-inspired video as a promotional campaign for Kanye’s album, Yeezus, which hits stores tomorrow.
The clip was projected outside a recording studio in Los Angeles during an album listening party. In it, Scott portrays the notorious Patrick Bateman, murderous spawn of the 1980s Wall Street scene, and it’s pitch perfect casting. Kim Kardashian’s BFF Jonathan Cheban makes an appearance also as the sacrificial lamb to Scott’s weapon of choice: an axe.
Even Bret Easton Ellis, the author of the source material, tweeted his approval of the Disick-Bateman comparisons in 2011 when there was news rippling through the film industry of an American Psycho remake.
“I have warned Lionsgate that I will not approve a new version of ‘American Psycho’ unless it stars SCOTT DISICK or MILES FISHER,” Bret wrote then.
What do you think? Does Scott nail it here? If anything, he was definitely born to wear his wardrobe.
