The video had a few similarities to the novel and film "American Psycho." The book's author Bret Easton Ellis even Tweeted about the video on March 12 saying, "I think I really, really like this a lot."

It was reported in January that former "Friday Night Lights" actress Minka Kelly turned down a date with Gyllenhaal following her breakup from New York Yankees player Derek Jeter.
