Aiding in Marty's disguise was a cloak, and his hoverboard to make it appear that he could fly.
His first attempt was taking Ebiffnezer to a work house with children having to work on Christmas Eve. The only result was Tannen recalling a kid who owed him money.
His second attempt was showing Ebiffnezer a family that was hungry & homeless. The only result was Tannen trying to get the family's dinner of a few chestnuts.
Marty got lucky as his holographic projection of Godzilla rampaging through Japan activated and scared Ebiffnezer into changing his ways.

Marty told Ebiffnezer that he was all of them.
