scott disick in american psycho promo kanye yeezusKanye West has delivered ... his new album, Yeezus. And to promote the project, which is filled with misogynistic, controversial lyrics, the new father's got a new promo that's a play on a flick with misogynistic, controverisal themes: American Psycho. As if that wasn't enough to pique your interest, Kanye's cast Scott Disick as the Patrick Bateman-esque character and Jonathan Cheban in the place of Patrick's colleague, Paul Allen. And yes, it's as insane, horrible, laughable, and horrifying as you might imagine.

I have to be honest -- like many others, I've always seen Scott Disick as Patrick Bateman! If anyone were to attempt to reprise Christian Bale's performance as the sex-, murder-, and Huey Lewis-obsessed investment banker, it would be his lookalike Scott, right? But OMG, that assumption neglects to acknowledge one major thing ...

Scott Disick cannot act -- at all.

Watching him attempt to is cringe-worthy. At least he's playing someone nutso, so he's got that going for him. And, to be fair, he does get an A for effort. See for yourself ... (WARNING: Probably NSFW. Gets kinda loud and bloody at one point.)

Wow, after watching that, I wonder if this is proof that Kardashian reality TV is actually more real than we thought? After all, it must be at least somewhat real for Scott -- and yeeeeze, Jonathan, too! -- to pull it off. Because being a master thespian is definitely NOT their forte.

What do you think of the Kanye promo? How do you think Scott did in Patrick Bateman's shoes?
