richard sherman’s friend dave

richard sherman, considered by many to be the best cornerback in the nfl, came up on the losing end of super bowl xlix yesterday with his team the seattle seahawks. nevertheless, his commercial for fathead wall graphics that ran during most of this season can be quite educational.

at :20 sherman’s friend dave confronts the sherman fathead who he believes to be the actual richard sherman

you’re still mad about last summer, aren’t u?  ok, i didn’t know it was a potluck. and i woulda brought something had i known. u gotta get over it, man.

aren’t u? is a tag question. a statement (you’re still mad about last summer) followed by an auxiliary and a pronoun that turn the statement into a question.

potluck means a dinner where everybody brings a pot full of food. in most instances it is organized to guarantee a nice variety of dishes.

i woulda brought something is a hypothetical example. we know this because of the structure: modal auxiliary (would) + have + past participle (brought). in reality, dave didn’t take anything to the potluck.

had i known is past perfect, which can also be used to indicate a hypothetical situation in the past.  the idea here is that dave didn’t take anything to the potluck in question because he didn’t know that it was a potluck.

finally dave tells the richard sherman fathead that he’s gotta get over it, i.e. not still be mad about dave’s misunderstanding about the potluck.
