Oh No You Didn’t! (Mercenaries 2 Ad OBSESSION)

Published by at 9:39 pm under amy's head

I have no idea why, but the first time I saw the Mercenaries 2 ad on TV, I was just so tickled. Guy taking names and kicking ass while this happy go lucky song with bouncy piano accompaniament narrates in the background. It’s a skippy happy joy joy song! Except it’s about blowing shit the hell up! Something about the juxtaposition of the music and the violence of the ad just kills me. I’m obsessing over it to the point of writing down all the lyrics downloading the song to my computer/ipod/iphone so I can play it over and over and watch/sing along to my heart’s content. The part that totally gets me? The high note that the male singer goes into falsetto to hit at the end of every verse. I just LOVE IT!

Am I crazy? You be the judge!

Here is the ad as it plays on the TV:

And here is a behind the scenes, “making of” video which uses the full version of the song:

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go see if I can plunk this piano accompaniament out on the piano.

Lyrics (transcribed by yours truly)(after the break):

oh no you didn’t
sucker tried to blame me but you never paid me never
oh no you didn’t
payback is a-comin’ you will be runnin’ forever
oh no you didn’t
until i get my vengeance i will never end this mayhem
oh no you didn’t
i’m a mercenary, you ain’t got a prayer, you owe me
oh no you didn’t

oh no you didn’t, oh no you didn’t
oh no you didn’t, oh no you didn’t
didn’t you oh no, you didn’t pay me what you owe, me,
so now it’s over for you

buh buh bah’s

oh no you didn’t
first you try to trap me, then you bust a cap in my ass
oh no you didn’t
such humiliation will bring annihilation at last
oh no you didn’t
it will be delicious when i get vicious, tomorrow
oh no you didn’t
there’s no second chances you will do the dance of sorrow
oh no you didn’t

oh no you didn’t, oh no you didn’t
oh no you didn’t, oh no you didn’t
didn’t you oh no, you didn’t pay me what you owe, me,
so now it’s over for you

buh buh bah’s

oh no you didn’t
better watch your back boy keep runnin’
this ain’t just a game i’ll never stop comin’
i’ve got my arsenal, i’ve put out the call
and when i’m finished y’all, you’ll be a rag doll

fool tried to dis me, now you’re gonna wish you were dead
oh no you didn’t
after i deliver your blood will be a river of red
oh no you didn’t
better be aware when no one’s there to defend you
oh no you didn’t
so many ways to kill it’s gonna be a thrill to end you
oh no you didn’t

oh no you didn’t, oh no you didn’t
oh no you didn’t, oh no you didn’t
didn’t you oh no, you didn’t pay me what you owe, me,
so now it’s over for you

oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no….

oh no you didn’t!
