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

Crowd: [whoops and whistles]

MacPhisto: "Ahahahaha. Bonsoir, Mesdames et Messieurs."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "Je m'appelle Monsieur MacPhisto à votre service." [sniggers]

Crowd: [cheers and applause]

MacPhisto: "Et ce soir, je vous dis au revoir."

Crowd: [awww]

MacPhisto: "It's not good evening. It's not good evening, it's... goodbye."

Crowd: [awww]

MacPhisto: "But as I leave Paris, my melancholy is tempered by the knowledge... that my people are arriving all over Europe. That's right. They go by many names, my people. In Sweden, they call themselves democrats – Sweden Democrats."

Crowd: [whoops]

MacPhisto: "In France, they keep changing their names. In Italy, they have too many names. In Poland, they have names even I can't pronounce."

Crowd: [whistles]

MacPhisto: "So many names, my little cabbages. But they all have one face... and it's mine. It's mine."

Crowd: [applause]

MacPhisto: "And 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!"
