Last month, we published an Apple Watch review by Patrick Bateman. Only, Patrick’s not real. He’s the protagonist of  ‘American Psycho’ by Brett Easton Ellis and I was channeling him for that little slice of satire.

Still, that didn’t stop one eager PR person from pitching an Apple Watch app to him:

I can’t tell for sure if Bateman would dig Easy Ten, which encourages you to learn 10 foreign words a day, and has just made the leap from the iPhone to the Apple Watch.

Still, 10/10 for effort, and to any other PRs hoping to get Patrick’s attention: This is a one-time deal. He’s too busy returning video tapes to handle any more pitches.
