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... discover themself in the looking glass..."

Crowd: [cheers and whistles]

MacPhisto: [admiringly] "Ohhh!" [chuckles] "You're a handsome devil. Je suis Monsieur MacPhisto à votre service, Mesdames et Messieurs."

Crowd: [cheers and applause]

MacPhisto: "I'm just back from Sweden. I didn't know how much I liked the Swedish. Tall... blond... blue-eyed... boooring!  But now, it appears the Swedes are beginning to discover their Aryan potential. Oh yes!  Å-- Åk-- Åkesson!" [gives Nazi salute]

Crowd: [boos and whistles]

MacPhisto: "Sorry. J-- Jimmie... Å-- Å-- Å-- Åkesson!" [gives Nazi salute]

Crowd: [boos and whistles]

MacPhisto: "I like him!  I like him. He's done so well in the election today. I love elections, I love balloons... I love parties... that get out of hand. France... you disappointed my favourite – little Marine Le Pen!"

Crowd: [laughter, loud boos and whistles]

MacPhisto: [shakes head] "I'm like the father she never had. And now she's had to change the name of her party, so people don't know that they don't like Jews or blacks."

Crowd: [boos and whistles]

MacPhisto: "I told her – you can hide in plain sight!  Because it's 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!"
