MacPhisto: [sings] "Even the greatest stars... discover themself in the looking glass..." [approaches tablet computer on a stand; sees a devilish face superimposed over his own image] "Even the greatest stars..."

MacPhisto: [admiringly] "Ohhh!"

Crowd: [whoops and whistles]

MacPhisto: "Ohh. Well, look at you... Paris! You must be exhausted after all that protesting." [sniggers] "Thousands and thousands of you, spoiling a perfectly wonderful walk, waving your banners about. About what? Climate change?!"

Crowd: [whoops and applause]

MacPhisto: "The greatest piece of fake news ever!  Boring." [yawns] "Ha ha ha."

Crowd: [whistles]

MacPhisto: "J'adore climate change! C'est merveilleux... non?"

Crowd: [whoops]

MacPhisto: "I mean, Bangladesh might be about to fall into the sea... but the sun was shining on my terrace today at The Peninsula, and I thought... FUCK climate change!"

Crowd: [boos and whistles]

MacPhisto: [wicked laugh] "Oh... and you clever types. Just remember – when you don't believe I exist, that's when I do... my best work."

[Acrobat begins]

MacPhisto: "Don't believe what you hear. Don't believe what you see. If you just close your eyes... you can feel the enemyyy! ...Ha!"
