Huey Lewis kills Weird Al

Let it be known that i have an eternal soft spot in my heart for Huey Lewis and The News.  Maybe it's because i was a little kid when i heard "The Heart of Rock and Roll" for the first time.  Maybe it was "Back to The Future."  Maybe it was Weird Al Yankovic's parody.  There's really no telling.  I can tell you though, that the Funny or Die sketch below reenacting a scene from "American Psycho" with Huey Lewis as Patrick Bateman and Weird Al as his hapless victim is pure, unadulterated genius.  Watch below.

Side story:  In 2010 as SXSW, a rumor circulated that Huey Lewis was going to play a secret show on top of the roof at the Whole Foods downtown.  It was a cruel, cruel hoax.  Anyway, enjoy the video.

  1. dude, awesome! So funny, I posted this today too! Huey Lewis - he's still just so awesome.
    That hoax would have destroyed me sir!
    Heart and Soul is still one of the greatest songs of the 80's. Such a hook on that one!
