Kanye West‘s American Psycho inspired trailer for Yeezus recently surfaced on his website following a public projection several days ago. The trailer finds Scott Disick assuming the role of Patrick Bateman to reprise a scene from the classic film with E!‘s Jonathan Cheban; in this case the pair debates the musical accomplishments of Kanye West instead of Huey Lewis. The promo trailer sprang from a rewrite provided by American Psycho writer Bret Easton Ellis. According to a recent tweet from Ellis, the final product was much shorter than the script he provided.

Fans of American Psycho have also begun to respond, expressing disappointment in the reenactment and what many consider the obvious lack of chops between the two actors. This news follows the recent leak of Yeezus and the official sale of the album, which dropped today. Check the footage below for the full trailer. Purchase Kanye West’s new LP Yeezus via iTunes.
