The British Embassy in Washington provided a cheeky Fourth of July tribute to the USA ― 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 form of idiot might see / There was one thing in all the things about you / Child come again, you’ll be able to blame all of it on me / I used to be incorrect and I simply can’t reside with out you.”
The colonists’ victory within the Revolutionary Conflict resulted within the breakup between the now very pleasant nations.
The embassy’s humour hasn’t at all times hit the mark. In 2014 it commemorated the 200th 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.
