Kanye West Enlists Scott Disick To Recreate American Psycho For Yeezus Promo Short Film
Kanye West‘s highly anticipated sixth studio album Yeezus may be a play on the name of the enlightened religious figure Jesus. But in the video promo for the album, he went all the way dark with a recreation of the 2000 film classic, American Psycho.
The video clip stars Kourtney Kardashian‘s baby daddy Scott Disick taking on the role of the movie’s main character, serial killer Patrick Bateman, who was originally played by Christian Bale. In the parody, Disick goes H.A.M. on his business partner (embodied by Kim Kardashian‘s longtime friend Jonathan Cheban) after ranting about the state of the music industry and, of course, the discography of Yeezy.
“Hey, do you like Kanye West?” Disick asks Cheban in the promo. “The early work was a little too hip-hop for me and my taste, but when Dark Twisted Fantasy came out in 2010, I think he really came into his own both musically and lyrically.”
Disick then turns on Cheban with an ax. “Hey, Jonathan!” he yells. “Try getting the Yeezus album now, motherf—–!”
Check out the interesting trailer below. West’s sixth studio album, Yeezus, hit stores yesterday. Do you think West should have employed the Keeping Up With Kardashians stars for his promo?
