John Kerry uses James Taylor to smooth things over with the French...

The United States made a faux pas when no high ranking officials were sent to offer condolences and support for a massive unity rally after the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.  So Secretary of State John Kerry gets James Taylor to come play his famous cover of Carole King's "You've Got A Friend".



I love JT's music very much, but this was LAME.

He starts by trying to play the French national anthem, as if it's the first time he's ever played it.  He adds in a few phrases in French.  Then the sound is kind of messed up.  Still, it's James Taylor and the French folks in attendance are gracious enough.  Poor James.  This was just very awkward and kind of embarrassing.  It looks pathetic and reminds me a little of this...



BP president and CEO Tony Hayward apologizes for the Gulf oil spill...



Uh huh... you're a sorry motherfucker alright...

Well, I'm sure James Taylor did his best.  Shucks.
