HUEY TUESDAY – a weekly dig through the archives of the only 80s band more interested in workin’ for a livin’ than being hip. But for every monster pop single, there was a deep album detour into new wave, ska, blues, reggae, a capella and instrumentals. Hip to be square, indeed! Have you really heard the News?
It was inevitable that one day Huey Lewis would get his revenge…
Everyone knows the buzz-worthy scene in American Psycho when Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) somewhat un-ironically deconstructs Lewis and the News’ mid-80s output as foreplay to murder.
Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you also probably know the fine folks over at Funny or Die masterfully recreated the scene with Lewis in the Bateman role and “Weird Al” Yankovic playing the role of victim.
Watch them both!
