Kourtney Kardashian's other half performs an eerily accurate impression of Patrick Bateman to promote Kanye West's new album, Yeezus.

Scott Disick really is Patrick Bateman - minus the mass murder and delusions, of course.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star is famed for his unique dress sense, a la Bateman, and his future brother-in-law Kanye West decided to use this to his advantage to promote his new album, Yeezus. He's already dressed as the pop culture icon at Halloween, so it's only fitting that he take on the role in a professional capacity.

Scott recreates one of American Psycho's most iconic scenes in which Patrick Bateman hacks a colleague to death -  in this case, a fellow member of the Kardashian inner circle (and Kim Kardashian BFF) Jonathan Cheban takes on the role played by Jared Leto in the film version of the 1991 novel.

The clip begins with Scott asking Jonathan if he likes Kanye West and when he responds indifferently, Scott indulges his 'murderous' side.

He begins to wax lyrical about West' work, saying: "Kanye's been compared to Jesus, Hitler, Walt Disney and even Steve Jobs.

"Kanye has decided to release this - Yeezus - his most exiting record by far. It should be obvious my now that new song New Slaves is the undisputed masterpiece on Yeezus,' he adds.

"A song [I Am God] so catchy, most people will remember the lyrics.

"Of course, the mainstream music press will never understand what it's about because it's about me,' he screams.

"Try getting the Yeezus album now, motherf****er!” Scott yells while murdering him.
