Black Hat greets the viewer, and almost immediately threatens them to buy his product. He then introduces the product, the Medusa Device, throws in a severed medusa head, and explains that it's purpose is to make cheap, high quality statues of one's self. He attempts to demonstrate it but is unsatisfied with the results, claiming he does not look like the sculpture. He attempts it again, getting a statue of him with everyone else in chains, with him striking a strong pose, which is, in his opinion, a more satisfying result. Whilst Black Hat is admiring the statue, it suddenly changes into a statue of him happily carrying 5.0.5. on his shoulders. It is then revealed that 5.0.5. had activated the device. Black Hat gets angry and commands Dr. Flug to fix it. He pressed the button and creates a statue of Black Hat using him as a chair, to which Black Hat is pleased.

She becomes suggestive towards Black Hat, further increasing his rage. Everyone begins frantically pressing the button to activate the device, until Black Hat breaks the chaos.
