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..."

MacPhisto: "Ohhh." [chuckles] "MacPhisto at your service." [bows]

Crowd: [cheers and applause]

MacPhisto: "Denmark!" [sniggers]

Crowd: [screams]

MacPhisto: "I... I thought I'd really gone off you. I had forgotten about your splendid colonial ways."

Crowd: [whoops and boos]

MacPhisto: "But I see you're finding your old form. Forget Borgen. You're banning burkas, and confiscating jewellery from those awful asylum seekers. Bravo!  Bravo, DP. Brav-fucking-o!"

Crowd: [laughter, whistles and applause]

MacPhisto: "People power. Power... to... MY... people."

Crowd: [whoops]

MacPhisto: "People like... Viktor Orbán in Hungary – lovely, lovely man."

Crowd: [whistles]

MacPhisto: "Jimmie Åkesson!" [gives Nazi salute] "...next door in Sweden. Mm-mm. Marine... what's her name?  Oh... France... little girl... big ideas. Daddy's little girl." [kissing sounds]

Crowd: [laughter]

MacPhisto: "Power to the people!  People like them. So many places. So many faces. But they... all... look... like... mine." [evil chuckle]

Crowd: [whoops, whistles and applause]

MacPhisto: "Don't believe what you hear. Don't believe what you see. If you just close your eyes... you can feel... the enemy." [evil laughter]

[Acrobat begins]

MacPhisto: "A-HAAAA!"
