Learn English – What’s the meaning of “Gets me every time”


I've heard people say this several times, in response to a funny video they watched,

Gets me every time.

This time I see this response the person put a laughing emoticon at the end. Does it mean it makes them laugh every time?

Best Answer

The phrase means that whatever it is engenders some strong emotion: here it will be laughter, but in other contexts it might be tears, surprise, or embarrassment.
