UFC and Super Bowl made me listen to two songs that I really hate
Nossa, nossa, assim você me mata… the fuck is wrong with Fabricio Werdum? Of all the songs to make your way into the cage, why Ai Si Eu Te Pego? Five seconds into the song and I really wanted Roy Nelson to kill him off, even if it seemed unlikely to happen (Werdum won).
I hate this song because it’s extremely overplayed to death around South America and sounds pretty annoying after only a few repeats. And somehow, most people love this song. They say it’s really catchy and it’s touted as the “song of the summer” around these parts. Michel Teló isn’t entirely loved, though. He also gets lots of hate from other people (mostly men) in the same way Justin Bieber gets his well-deserved hatred. But unlike the Canadian, it doesn’t go to the point of death threats — at least not yet.
The song became so popular it was re-released in English earlier this year (listen here). Gotta admit, you’re better off with the Portuguese version since the English version just sounds flat-out corny and its lyrics are a lot more laughable than the original’s.
Listening to Ai Si Eu Te Pego in a UFC event felt like being bitchslapped. However, I’m willing to forgive Werdum’s song selection because the fight between him and Roy Nelson was pretty awesome and worth the watch.
