Kanye West Takes Inspiration From Bret Easton Ellis

By: Amanda Crum - June 18, 2013

Kanye West has chosen an interesting way to promote his new album, Yeesus; the new dad took advantage of Scott Disick’s resemblance to a certain Psycho and used it to great effect in a new promo video.

Disick, who is the father of Kourtney Kardashian’s children, is dressed like Christian Bale’s character in “American Psycho” in the video, which may or may not be a nod to the fact that people have noticed over the years his uncanny resemblance to Patrick Bateman. Apparently, Bret Easton Ellis–who authored the book the movie is based on–wrote the original script for the video but tweeted on Monday that it was changed a bit.

The video is now available to view here (NSFW).
