Dublin, Ireland


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

Crowd: [laughter, whoops and whistles]

MacPhisto: [inhales] "Hello... you lovely little leipreacháns." [sniggers]

Crowd: [laughter and whoops]

MacPhisto: "MacPhisto is my name."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "I'm Irish, actually."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "Mac-Phisto, get it? Isn't everyone Irish, who wants to rule the world?"

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "Hahahahahaha. I've a message for you little island people. Build that wall!  Build that wall!  Build that wall!"

Crowd: [boo]

MacPhisto: "Call it a backstop. Call it a peace wall. Call it a border. Whatever – just build it!  'How?' I hear you ask. Just let the passions flow. A little bit of distrust, some bigotry, some jealousy, and watch that wall emerge. In people's hearts... and minds. Brick by brick, prick by prick!  Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!"

Crowd: [whoops, whistles and applause]

MacPhisto: "And remember, Dublin... 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!  Haaa!"
