the free form "me" actually refers to "je" as indirect beneficiary,
especially when neither "je" nor any benefice are implied.
for instance with same "te" :

lui, ce verre, il te le boit en deux secondes.
him, this glass, he for-you it drinks in 2 seconds.
"he drinks out the drink within 2 secs, can you believe it ?"

funny, eh ?
