If the Brits ruled over America, Newcastle wouldn't have to apologize for wishing the Brits ruled over America.Oh, what a thought, eh. What if the New World pilgrims hadn't won the Revolutionary War? This country wouldn't have been called the United States of America, and it probably wouldn't have been called the Revolutionary War to begin with.
One YouTuber takes an insightful slant on this:
I love how stupid us Americans are. We poke and jab and make jokes at almost every country in the world, but someone makes a joke about us and we get all butthurt and start crying. Anyone that doesn't find this funny is just a dumbass. So to all the "patriots" out there, the next time you decide to jab at any other country, remember this ad and how it made you feel. If you can't take a joke about your own country, you don't get the right to joke about another. Good day.It's an absolutely genius ad to draw on what I'd describe as linguistic reversal or soft-pedal, that is, sorry about not being sorry. It's not a bad idea, either, to engage the beautiful Brit Elizabeth Hurley.
