Huey Lewis and Weird Al turn the tables on American Psycho

Both American Psycho and the movie adaptation, American Psycho, notoriously mocked the blander parts of US society in a series of coruscating monologues from its lead character, Patrick Bateman. One of those skewered by the movie was Huey Lewis and the News.

Now, the bland are getting their revenge. Here’s Huey Lewis assuming the Christian Bale part to monologue his revenge on both the movie and Weird Al Yankovic in this entirely bizarre video.
