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: [cheer]

MacPhisto: [inhales] "Buonasera, Milano."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "MacPhisto al vostro servizio."

Crowd: [cheers and applause]

MacPhisto: "Ohhh." [wipes away tears] "I'm so sad tonight. I do miss my old pal... Benito Mussolini."

Crowd: [laughter and whistles]

MacPhisto: [sniffles] "Ohhh, Benny. Benny and his jets."

Crowd: [laughter]

MacPhisto: "I used to say, 'Il Duce?'"

Crowd: [laughter, whoops, boos and whistles]

MacPhisto: "Oh, hold on!  I used to say, 'Il Duce, what's the use of the trains running on time, if you're not deporting people?'" [wicked laugh]

Crowd: [laughter, whoops and applause]

MacPhisto: [laughing] "Mm-hm!  But you know... old Benny-Benny-Benito, he did have some... excellent ideas. The Manifesto of Race – Manifesto della razza." [laughs]

Crowd: [whistles]

MacPhisto: "So practical. So practical. No ethnic shops after 9 o'clock."

Crowd: [whoops and applause]

MacPhisto: "I think that's where we got it all started. No people with very dark tans – unless they're... orange... if you know what I mean." [laughs]

Crowd: [whistles and applause]

MacPhisto: "Oh, and Milano? Just remember. It's when you don't believe that 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!"
