[Even Better Than The Real Thing ends]

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..."

MacPhisto: "Hahaaa. Don... don, don... don MacPhisto a su servicio." [bows] "Hahahahahaha."

Crowd: [cheers and applause]

MacPhisto: "Ohhh." [sniffs] "What's... that... smell? Ohhh. Ohh. The stench of... democracy? Hahahahaha."

Crowd: [whoops]

MacPhisto: "Oh, Spain. I thought you'd be over that by now. It's been 39 years, 10 months and 15 days, and..." [waves hand] "You do know you're on the wrong side of history, my little... madrileños?"

Crowd: [cheers, whistles and applause]

MacPhisto: "Ohhh, yes. You need to get with the programme. People power!"

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "Power... to... MY people. People like... Viktor Orbán in Hungary – lovely man. Jimmie Åkesson!" [gives Nazi salute] "...in Sweden. That brilliant mind in Poland, and Marine, Marine, Marine, errr..." [waves hand] "...ye-ye-ye-ye-yeah. MY people. MY people. Power to the people... like... them. Now... as for the rest of you, you have the power... to do what you're fucking told!"

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "Vote MacPhisto – I'm your man... your strong man for Europe!  And remember... it's when you don't believe I exist – that's when I do... my best work." [hisses]

[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!  Haa!"
