The Cindy Sherman of Music Videos?

We’ve come a long way since “Sabotage.” This pitch-perfect recreation of American Psycho treads a very thin line throughout, with bits of wit (blood confetti, hooker handclaps) and scary casting. (via Neon Gold Beat Company)

There have been countless videos in the vein of satire and homage, but few have been able to match the source material’s tone and simultaneously extend its commentary. The video’s product shots – brick phones, gold Rolexes – which are then incorporated into the scenes makes me wonder if somewhere Mary Harron is slapping her forehead.  And kudos to the production designer for more or less duplicating the original Pat Bateman apartment.
