Video: Hurry! Watch this supercut of “don’t you die on me” death scenes before it dies on you

Don't die on me JOE reader. Don't die on me. Don't you dare die on me. Don't do it. Don't die on me.


Don’t die on me JOE reader. Don’t die on me. Don’t you dare die on me. Don’t do it. Don’t die on me.

OK, good. Now that you’re not going to go dying on me, why don’t you watch this brilliant compilation of numerous film characters saying “don’t die on me” in all of its weird and wonderful ways.

Excellently edited by supercutonline, the clip will have you reaching for the tissues as most of the included scenes involve some sort of horrible, emotional death… or a phone running out of battery. An equally horrifying scenario, we’re sure you’ll agree.

From John Travolta’s Vincent Vega screaming “don’t f*ckin’ die on me Mia!” in Pulp Fiction, to Nic Cage’s Cameron Poe drawling “you just hang on, don’t die on me” in Con Air, they’re all here… almost.*

*How in the Sam Hill did they miss out on JOE’s favourite? It is, of course, Jim Carrey’s Lloyd in the flawless Dumb And Dumber, “don’t you go dying on me!”

And, in case you want to pretend that you knew what all of the films were, here’s the list of silver screen scenes in full:
