What happens when you use Parting Shot on a Pokemon with Magic Bounce?

Please don't use Showdown to test.

I would think the effect just gets bounced like always. But I don't have proof
There's a secondary effect of causing the Pokemon to switch out in a U-Turn style manner though. Which is really the thing I'm wondering about.
I would assume that Magic Bounce would take effect first, but I'm not sure.

If using parting shot, the magic bouncer will switch out and the attack/special attack of the user will drop. I was actually curious about this earlier and tested it myself(on X) and this is what happened.
