Huey Lewis Goes 'American Psycho' on Weird Al



A new short film on Funny or Die features '80s rock star Huey Lewis explaining his pet theories about the film American Psycho to a drunk and totally disinterested Weird Al Yankovic. Of course, if you're familiar at all with the film he's discussing, you'll notice this scene is strangely familiar, especially when Huey slips on a plastic raincoat and... well, just watch.

Extra meta-points to this short for Lewis riffing on Christian Bale's monologue from the scene, which itself featured Huey's music, which is... oh never mind, you get it. This short marks the 30th anniversary of Lewis's hit album Sports, which in turn inspired Weird Al's parody “I Want a New Duck.”
