The British Embassy in Washington provided a cheeky Fourth of July tribute to america ― a playlist with “Baby Come Back” as the one music.
The tweet included a photograph of Jonathan Groff as King George III, the British monarch who opposed the colonists’ bid for independence, within the Broadway musical “Hamilton.”
The band Participant sang the 1977 hit “Child Come Again,” which goes: “Child come again, any sort of idiot might see / There was one thing in all the things about you / Child come again, you may blame all of it on me / I used to be improper and I simply can’t stay with out you.”
The colonists’ victory within the Revolutionary Struggle resulted within the breakup between the now very pleasant nations.
The embassy’s humor hasn’t at all times hit the mark. In 2014 it commemorated the two hundredth anniversary of British troopers burning down the White Home with a photograph of a cake topped by a miniature White Home. “Only sparklers this time!” the caption went. Some Twitter customers accused the Brits of poor style and the embassy tweeted an apology.
