I don't know what it is about this song, but I don't like it. This is a game aimed at teenage boys, yet the song has a teenage girl "oh no you didn't" hook in it. I know they're probably trying to contrast the rough rugged game with an upbeat catchy tune, but I just found it unpleasant. Dead

I know I'm probably going to somehow attract Mercenaries fans, but sorry, I don't like this one. Apparently lots of people online are in love with the song.

I thought it was stupid, too. I've only seen the commercial once but I'm sure that once I start to see it more often I won't be able to stand it. We should make a national list of annoying songs that shouldn't be allowed on television.

Pathetic. All most like some stupid parody you'd see on South Park of video games like this.

I HATE THAT SONG.Thumbs%20Down

and now since they used that dumb phrase so many times in that ad I'm finally tired of it.

they say "oh no you did't/oh no you did'nt"

it SHOULD be

"oh no you didn't."

This just reminds me of one of those crappy memes some loser created on youtube. Remember corporate America forced memes aren't funny.

Maybe because it was waaay late and I shoulda been asleep but I kinda liked it.  You usually don't hear guys say that so it caught attention.  I have only seen it twice so far, I suppose it would get tiresome if I heard it all the time.

Good to see someone else cranked this one up; the tune drives me NUTS, not to speak of yet another violent, 'revenge-oriented' piece of work meant to 'entertain'. Saw this tweeky commercial for the first time while we were "educating ourselves" by watching G4 silliness, last weekend (we watched the 'Hurl!' marathon...Dead...the whoooole thing!); the commercial was on every break, it seemed.

I just got home from work today, where I was treated to 2 teenage boys yelling this song throughout my section. And of course, the loudest shout was for OH NO YOU DIDN'T. It doesn't  help that it was close to closing time and the rest of the store was dead silent.

....It also doesn't help that I was watching them because they were acting suspiciously, like they were going to try and shoplift Dead

I thought the phrase "Oh no you didn't" went out in the mid 80's.

Honestly I thought the commercial was awesome, but it's more from the graphic design aspect of it since that's what I'm in school for.

If you watch the high quality EA version on YouTube you can see that the whole commercial looks like it's on printed money (even the skin on the people looks like the ink style used on dollar bills), with the characters "popping" out of it, and it fits the song nicely. But I can see how someone who isn't interested in the visual design aspect of the commercial would hate it for the song, especially if they hear it over and over again.

the visuals aren't bad it's that stupid song I can't stand, it doesn't have longevity after one viewing.

Loved it. Even downloaded the song .mp3. "You owe meeeeeeeee!" line at the end in falsetto as everything explodes is great.  The words are what makes this song fun for gamers.

Thanks for posting so I can watch over and over and over again ;)

At first I probably didnt think it was bad, then it kinda got annoying after hearing it a few more times. I dont think its one of my kinda games though.

"not to speak of yet another violent, 'revenge-oriented' piece of work meant to 'entertain'"

As a gamer (Who plays all sorts of games), I hope you arent one of those "video games make people commit crime" people.

I tolerated it the first time. Every viewing after was pure misery. They would have been better off blaring some random metal song in the background than that annoying ass one they chose.

Perhaps.  Personally, I am a fan of specific genres of metal.  This "song" just annoys me in general.  I don't like their rhyme attempts or how they try to hit the high notes.  I think they could have done a lot worse, IMO, but it was still pretty annoying.
