In this clip, Lewis recreates the infamous scene from 2000's American Psycho--you know, the one where Christian Bale waxes rhapsodic about the merits of a certain musician (wink, wink), then slams an ax through Jared Leto's head. Except here, in a hysterical reversal, Lewis extolls the virtues of American Psycho.
And then, the best part: He whacks another '80s icon--none other than Weird Al Yankovic!
What did poor Al do to deserve this? It's been a long time, but he did spoof Lewis's smash "I Want A New Drug" back in 1985 with "I Want A New Duck."
If you're not familiar with the original scene from the movie, or it's been a few years since you've checked it out, see the side-by-side comparison below. Who wore that raincoat best?
Lewis will be celebrating the anniversary of his album by releasing a special expanded commemorative edition of Sports on May 14. The band will also launch a companion North American tour that month.
