Run and Tell That

joke, jokingly; compounding; popular, not technical
A pseudo-insult said at the end of a threat or a verbal beatdown
 
Comes from the popular “Bed Intruder” video featuring Antoine Dodson of Huntsville, AL. Originating as a news story, the media clip went viral after being transformed into an autotuned song, and the phrase “run and tell that” is punctuated and lively because it precedes the climax of the song. The use of YouTube increased the popularity to such an extent that this once ordinary phrase has taken on a slew of new unspoken connotations.
Etymology : Taken from the YouTube video “Bed Intruder”
