me: hey dad; how hot is it outside?
dad: oh, believe you me, it's unbearable out there.
it reads like a terribly emphatic "believe me" and, in my experience, it's always spoken slowly and forcefully. is there a name for this type of verb + you + object (?) construction? (i'm no linguist, so, forgive my lack of proper terminology.) also, can anyone think of any other examples? i vaguely recall a Jimmy Eat World song that uses the phrase "hear you me", which sounds terribly incorrect to me.
