This Kanye West commercial (ahem, short film) spoofs American Psycho

With the Kanye West machine in overdrive this week—Yeezus officially comes out today, perhaps you've heard—some things were bound to go slightly off the rails. The album is audacious and a little scary, not unlike Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho, and its filmic companion, directed by Mary Harron. In some sort of homage to the film's Huey Lewis scene, Kardashian adjuncts Jonathan Cheban and Scott Disick star in this commercial—uh, short film—to promote the record. They are not good actors, and this video doesn't do the album any favors. Couldn't he have just written some lyrics about Patrick Bateman? The rhyme possibilities are endless.
