Huey Lewis and Weird Al Do American Psycho, Nightmares Ensue

I once unintentionally experimented on myself. While at work, I spent an entire day on the Huey Lewis and The News Spotify page. I listened to his entire catalog, doubling back on Sports, of course. I ignorantly assumed that his saxy upbeat tunes would have me dad dancing my way through all the day's tasks. I was dead wrong. Halfway through my second spin of Fore!, I hit "Hip to Be Square" (one of my all-time Huey favs), and my head was abruptly invaded by inexplicable rage. Although I was still deep in a head-bob, shoulder shake at my desk, I couldn't escape these angry thoughts. I've since learned to take Huey in smaller doses, and I've also gained a peculiar, subconscious connection with Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho character, Patrick Bateman, who, when played in the movie by Christian Bale, blissfully discussed Hue's work as he danced and butchered the hell outta Jared Leto (but we're probably not alone in that thought, am I right!?).

Well, it seems that Huey himself caught the crazy bug. In a video for Funny or Die Huey and "Weird Al" Yankovic re-enact the entire American Psycho scene.
