Stadio Delle Alpi

MacPhisto: [sings] "Moon River, wider than a mile... I'm crossing you in style, some day. Oh you moon raker, you heart breaker... wherever you're going, I'm going your way!"

MacPhisto: "That's a good one. Do you like that? I do like that. Do you like... me?"

Crowd: "Yeah!"

MacPhisto: "I love me!  I know you like your pop stars to be exciting, so I bought these." [shows off platform boots] "Am I an exciting pop star now?"

Crowd: "Yeah!"

MacPhisto: "Show business. What a night, what a show. Can you put a spotlight on the East German cars that we have hanging from the ceiling? I'd like to show them here. D'you see these cars?"

Crowd: "Yes!"

MacPhisto: "You speak awfully good English. You see these cars? We had many more, but now we have only three. Do you think if I called Mr Agnelli, he would help me?"

Crowd: [cheers and laughter]

MacPhisto: "Shall I make a telephone call to him? Alright then. I believe his nickname is l'Avvocato... I seem to recall. I hope he's in. When you're famous, everybody gives you their telephone number."


MacPhisto: "Six-six-two, oh-four... four... four."

Man: "Pronto."

MacPhisto: "Hello, I'd like to speak to Mr Agnelli, please."

Man: "...Hello?"

MacPhisto: "Hello, could I speak to Mr Gianni Agnelli, please? ...Hello? ...Hello."

Crowd: [singing] "Agnelli, Agnelli, Agnelli, vaffanculo!"

MacPhisto: "Hello there, I'd like to speak to Mr Agnelli, please."

MacPhisto: [sings] "I just called to say I love you..."

Crowd: [laughter and applause]

MacPhisto: [sings] "I just called to say how much I care... I just called..."

MacPhisto: "Hello...? Hello... I just wanted to know if we could have some Fiat Bambinis for our stage!"

Crowd: [laughter]

[Ultra Violet begins]

MacPhisto: "What can I say?"
