John Oliver: In Gaining Independence, USA Lost Out on Accents, Meat Pies

Though there was no new Last Week Tonight last night this week, John Oliver took the time to make sure Americans keep things in check while celebrating Independence Day.

In the above online-only video, Oliver commends the USA on “kicking Britain unceremoniously out of this country” all those years ago, before listing the wonderfully British things we are now missing out on as a result — such as “beautiful vowel sounds” spilling out from our mouths, and the misleading appearance of meat pies.

What else — including fetch headwear — did Americans give up by way of the Revolution? Press play above to find out.
