Huey Lewis has gotten some help from the creative minds at Funny or Die.com too exact revenge on two fronts and it’s hilarious.
First let’s watch the scene from the movie American Psycho where Christian Bale’s character Patrick uses Huey Lewis and the News song “Hip To Be Square” to mask the sounds of a most gruesome murder in his apartment. (Best not to let the kids watch this scene)
Huey and the Band weren’t thrilled that their music was being set to murder scene so they pulled the song from the film’s soundtrack. However, the band and their music will forever be associated with that film and scene.
Now, also on the Huey Lewis revenge radar, Weird Al Yankovic. After the release of the song “I Want A New Drug”, Weird Al did a parody of it named “I Want A New Duck”.
Here’s the original:
And here’s Weird Al’s version:
Now Huey and the band thought it was cute for the song to be parodied so there’s really no hard feelings with that but with the 30th anniversary of the band’s breakthrough album “Sports” being celebrated this month and it was the perfect time to get back at both American Psycho and Weird Al.
This video is brilliant.
It perfect right down the song title on the pill bottle to really stick it to Al. Then there was the axe to his head. Again, probably not a video for the kids to watch.
Good for everyone though to have a laugh at these situations and put them to bed. Thanks Funny or Die.com
