June 18 (UPI) -- Kanye West enlisted Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend Scott Disick to star in a promotional video for his new album, "Yeezus."

In the clip, inspired by 2000 thriller "American Psycho," Disick reincarnates Christian Bale's character, serial killer Patrick Bateman, as he introduces West's new album to his business partner, played by Kim Kardashian's friend, Jonathan Cheban.

"Hey, do you like Kanye West?" Disick asks Cheban in the clip. "The early work was a little too hip-hop for me and my taste, but when Dark Twisted Fantasy came out in 2010, I think he really came into his own both musically and lyrically.

"There's the song 'I'm a God,'" he continues. "The title practically speaks for itself, but of course the insecurities of the mainstream music press will never understand its true meaning because it's about me!"

In the end, Disick goes all "American Psycho" on Cheban and kills him with an ax as he yells "Hey, Jonathan! Try getting the Yeezus album now, [expletive]!"

West's "Yezzuz" hit stands and iTunes today.
