The hype around Kanye West’s new album Yeezus can’t really get any bigger. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t watch Scott Disick in this American Psycho inspired commercial for the new album.
West unveiled the
short film commercial at a listening party in Los Angeles last week but the video didn’t make it online until today.
The video features Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban from Keeping Up With The Kardashians and uses American Psycho as inspiration.
The Yeezus commercial mimics a speech from the movie in which Patrick Bateman (played by Christian Bale) talks about Huey Lewis and the News. In Kanye West’s video, Disick uses Yeezus as the musical topic.
Disick says: “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. (Yeezuz is Kanye West’s) most exciting record by far.”
And then, of course, Disick takes an axe to Cheban.
Here’s Kanye West’s American Psycho ad for Yeezus. If you don’t like cursing, gore, or terrible acting you should probably skip this video.
