Today's Great Thing: Huey Lewis and Weird Al Re-create That Classic 'American Psycho' Scene

Today's Great Thing: Huey Lewis and Weird Al Re-create That Classic 'American Psycho' Scene

Apr 03, 2013

Remember that scene in American Psycho where Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) brings one of his drunk, elitist coworkers back to his apartment in order to butcher him with an ax? It's a great, maniacal scene that probably shouldn't come up in conversation on a first date (or a job interview), and it involves Bateman going off on a rant about the evolving career of Huey Lewis and the News while he oh so joyfully prepares to off this dude in dramatic fashion. 

Here, the brilliant minds at Funny or Die actually brought Huey Lewis and Weird Al Yankovic together to re-create the scene, except this time Lewis pontificates about American Psycho, all while an intoxicated Weird Al awaits his demise. Completely random and yet completely brilliant, this is today's great thing that you need to watch immediately. 

Here's the original NSFW scene from American Psycho.

Here's the Funny or Die version.

And for those wondering why Weird Al? Well...
