MacPhisto: "Do you know who I am? Because I know who you are. Look what you've done to me. You've made me very famous, and I thank you. I know you like your pop stars to be exciting, so I bought these." [shows off platform boots] "Now look at me, I'm gigantic!"

Crowd: [cheers and whistles]

MacPhisto: "Do you know who Helmut Kohl is? Because I've got to go and see him now. He needs me, I put him to sleep at night. Excuse me while I call a taxi. You don't mind if I call a taxi, do you? You speak awfully good English."


Woman: "Taxi-Roland, guten Abend."

MacPhisto: "Hello, my name is MacPhisto, and I'd like to order a taxi..."

Woman: "Ja..."

MacPhisto: ""

Woman: "Moment, moment..."

MacPhisto: "Thank you."

Man: [answer drowned out by crowd noise]

MacPhisto: "Hello."

Man: "Hello."

MacPhisto: "I, I'd like to order a taxi, I'd like to go and see the Chancellor, Helmut Kohl, please."

Man: "Kohl? But that's, er, very far away. It is in Bonn, you know – it, it's about 600 kilometres."

MacPhisto: "I, I don't mind travelling that far, I really think he needs to see me."

Man: "Yeah? Who are you, then? Who are you, what's your name?"

MacPhisto: "My name is MacPhisto, and I want to thank the Chancellor for letting me back into the country."

Man: "Oh. No problem. Did you... did you [inaudible]?"

MacPhisto: "Would you take me to see him, please?"

Man: "Yes, I can send you a taxi. But it's very expensive, you know?"

MacPhisto: "I can afford it..."

Man: "Ja? Takes a long time."

MacPhisto: "...I'm a very rich pop star!"

Man: "Oh, ha!"

Crowd: [cheer]

Man: [laughs] "I didn't know! Takes a long time though... [inaudible]"

[Ultra Violet begins]

MacPhisto: [sings] "Sometimes I feel like I don't know, sometimes I feel like checking out... I want to get it wrong... can't always be strong... and love it won't be long..."

MacPhisto: "TAKE ME TO SEE HIM!"
