Huey Lewis has his revenge on Weird Al in 'American Psycho' parody

Funny Or Die video is shot-for-shock

Huey Lewis and the News played a significant role in "American Psycho," or at least in one of its most significant scenes. In honor of the "Sports" album's 30th anniversary, Huey himself has shown up for that deliciously demented monologue, with "Weird Al" Yankovic his victim.

You'll remember Al parodying "Fore!" single "I Want a New Drug" in "I Want a New Duck." It's revenge on a parody in a parody, as it also extols its subjects, and Jared Leto gets to skate. The snake eats its own tail. I know. I need a nap, too.

Lewis originally objected to the inclusion of "Hip to Be Square" in the original film. Perhaps he saw the light? (Or the dark?)
