Funny or Die helps celebrate the 30th anniversary of Huey Lewis and the News album Sports.
Spoofing the best scene in American Psycho where Christian Bale, as Patrick Bateman, explains the excellence of a Huey Lewis and the News album to a man he is about to ax-murder all while listening to Lewis’ song Hip to Be Square, Huey Lewis murders Weird Al Yankovic in the same fashion while talking about the movie American Psycho.
It should be noted, and if you’ve ever listened to the 40oz. Of Horror Podcast you have probably noticed, that James Dunn and I have been life long fans of Huey Lewis and the News. So beyond the American Psycho connection, this video had to be posted on our site.
The album for which Bateman has such reverence is 1983’s Sports, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year — Funny or Die have put together this killer tribute in honor of the record and for Yankovic’s new single I Want a New Duck, a parody of Lewis’ I Want a New Drug.
