Kanye West Presents: Scott Disick & Jonathan Cheban In "[Black] American Psycho" (Yeezus)

"Scott Disick's dreams come true in the promo that I originally wrote for Kanye's new record, but not a lot was used: kanyewest.com," Tweeted American Psycho (1991) author Bret Easton Ellis. Rather than Christian Bale & Jared Leto, it co-stars Kourtney Kardashian's "baby daddy" Scott Disick and Kim Kardashian's BFF, Jonathan Cheban re-creating an infamous scene from the film; effectively subbing Huey Lewis & The News psycho killer talk for an interesting commentary on Yeezus. It's essentially the same footage that was projected on a few building sides, post album listening sessions, across the world this past weekend. Disick as Patrick Bateman impassionately laments about Yeezus, "It should be obvious by now that "New Slaves" is the undisputed masterpiece on Yeezus. A song so catchy, most people wont even remember the lyrics... But they should," as he walks into a side room and pits on a raincoat. "Then there's the song, "I Am a God." The title practically speaks for itself, but of course, the insecurities of the mainstream music press will never understand it's true meaning, because it's about me!," before taking an ax to a tragically oblivious Jonathan Cheban (Paul Allen). With one final blood-splattered swoop, Scott Disick wails, "Try getting the Yeezus album now, motherf*cker!," which it just so happens, is available in stores today for right around $10. For what it's worth, Scott Disick is a mild douchebag and a pretty sub-par actor, but somehow,it works; While Yeezus sounds 100x better @ night, if you ask me! I guess that could have something to do with the album's dark, brooding undertones juxtaposed against the rainy night sky.
