Actress Margot Robbie has appeared in films such as the widely celebrated 'Wolf of Wall Street,' 'Suicide Squad' and most recently, 'Tarzan.' In a video produced by Vogue, she parodies the introduction from 'American Psycho' to coincide with her 2016 Vogue cover story. She is shown reenacting the vigorous morning routine of the film's status-obsessed and severely narcissistic serial killer, Patrick Bateman.

Using a similar music track to the film and speaking in the same cold and cryptic tone, the parody works to poke fun at actress Margot Robbie's beauty regimen, revealing her unique sense of humor at the same time. Like Patrick Bateman, she speaks of the importance of getting rid of her under eye circles and her use of multiple face peels, being sure to list the names of every product she religiously uses.

The parody, called 'Australian Psycho,' exaggerates the beauty regimen to include "placenta-infused creams" and spoons dipped in an unpronounceable elixir, her morning routine growing more and more absurd and hilarious as the video progresses.
