During one of his trademark rants at the Governors Ball, Kanye West announced that he "could give a f**k about selling a million records," and wouldn’t have a big promotional campaign for his newest album Yeezus. And yet, a day before its official release, the new dad has posted a promo for the album on his website: a shot-for-shot remake of a famous scene from American Psycho.

This recreation has Keeping Up with the Kardashians' Scott Disick donning the raincoat as serial killer Patrick Bateman. He chooses Yeezus as his murder soundtrack rather than Huey Lewis and the News, chopping up Kim Kardashian’s BFF Jonathan Cheban while listening to "New Slaves." While Disick may look like Bateman’s original portrayer Christian Bale, his acting leaves a lot to be desired.

I’m not sure how much of an overlap there is between Kanye and American Psycho fans, but the promo is certainly unexpected, which is what makes it so very Kanye.
