The frequent comparisons drawn between Scott Disick and Patrick Bateman have apparently gone to the reality star's head, because he's attempted to portray the iconic serial killer -- a character first brought to terrifying cinematic life by Christian Bale -- in an online short.

Disick, most famous for being Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend and baby daddy, stepped into Bateman's designer suit and shoes to recreate an infamous "American Psycho" scene as part of a promotional stunt for Kanye West's latest album, "Yeezus." (Now that Kanye is also a Kardashian baby daddy -- girlfriend Kim gave birth to their daughter on June 15 -- he and Disick share one of those bonds only Hollywood can forge.)

In the original scene, Bale's Bateman delivers a monologue about Huey Lewis and the News before donning a see-through raincoat and dispatching Jared Leto's Paul Allen with an axe.

In West and Disick's campy send-up, which features Kim Kardashian BFF Jonathan Cheban as the unwitting victim, Disick lauds the musical virtues of "Yeezus" before slipping into the same creepy coat and going postal on Cheban's head.

Watch the two scenes below. For someone who typically takes himself so seriously (recent New York Times quote: "I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things"), West has done something downright silly here.
