Huey Lewis and Weird Al Yankovic parody American Psycho

hueyBY SCOTT PHILLIPS

The Internet is full of videos and parodies meant to make people laugh. Some deliver a smile, others a muted chuckle, and an elite upper-echelon video reaches the pinnacle of Internet stardom and makes people across the country laugh hysterically.

I never thought Huey Lewis or Weird Al Yankovic could deliver such a masterpiece, but somehow, they’ve done it.

A parody of a scene between Christian Bale and Jared Leto in the 2000 psychological thriller American Psycho, Huey Lewis and Weird Al pull it off by re-creating the original shot-for-shot while incorporating new dialogue that fits the comedic tone of a parody while also matching the tone of the original scene.

The original scene is below (spoiler alert; duh) and the parody is linked below the original scene. I suggest watching the American Psycho scene, followed by the Huey Lewis version to notice all of the little details the parody catches.
