    I feel like this song is becoming the "Macarena" of the current era. That said the one shot of the Marine sighting down his rifle as the lyric "Where do you think you're going, baby?" plays is at the same time badass, hilarious, and slightly troubling. I always imagined our troops humming the "Battle hymn of the Republic" or quoting psalms as they take out bad guys. Now I'll be forever stuck with the image of a battle hardened Marine humming pop tunes and he takes out insurgents…
