One of the best scenes in Mary Harron‘s American Psycho (2000) is when Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) has a business card duel with his business associates. Each Pierce & Pierce executive tries to one-up the other with their impressive font selection and even more high-end and expensive stock. Bateman begins to sweat when Paul Allen’s card is presented: “Look at that subtle off-white coloring, the tasteful thickness of it. Oh my god, it even has a watermark,” he thinks to himself.
A gem that’s been hiding online since last year digitally removes the business cards and replaces them with Pokémon cards. I’m no Pokémon expert, but I can only imagine that the cards chosen only make this video even more hilarious.
