British Embassy Delightfully Teases U.S. With Fourth Of July Playlist

With “Baby Come Back” as the lone song on the playlist, the British Embassy in Washington paid a playful Fourth of July homage to the United States.

The tweet featured a picture of the Broadway musical “Hamilton” star Jonathan Groff portraying King George III, the British emperor who opposed the colonies’ struggle for independence.

You’ll return, the tweet promises. In the stage hit, Groff performed a song with the same name.

“Baby Come Back,” a hit song by the band Player from 1977, has the following lyrics: “Baby come back, any sort of idiot could see / There was something in everything about you / Baby come back, you can blame it all on me / I was wrong and I simply can’t live without you.”

The separation of the suddenly incredibly amicable nations was brought about by the colonists’ victory in the Revolutionary War.

The comedy of the embassy hasn’t always been spot on. A picture of a cake with a tiny White House on top was used to celebrate the 200th anniversary of British soldiers burning down the White House in 2014. The caption read, “Only sparklers this time! “. The British embassy posted an apology after several Twitter users accused them of having bad taste.
