A remixed version of the track by Riot in Belgium was featured on the soundtrack of Electronic Arts' computer game; Need for Speed: ProStreet.

- LyricsCuizinier avec ton petit sexe entour de poils roux
Je n'arrive pas croire que tu
Puisses croire qu'on veuille de toi
Je n'y crois pas mme dans le noir
Mme si tu gardes ton pyjama
- LyricsFou et telemement evident
Que je n'trouve plus de sens
A ce jeu excitant
Si bon mais si lassant
Tu aimes me manipuler
- LyricsTu dconnes, on va pas se faire
Encore un plan gros a-comme
De quel plan tu causes, tu oses
C'est toi qu'a commenc
J'abandonne, t'es vraiment plus bonne
me regarde et je suis sous le charme comme si tous coup
je n'tais plus une femme.
