Mensagem:  Main verb + auxiliary passive verb structure

Get = main verb
made = auxiliary passive verb, as in "Ricardo got it made all right!"
done = auxiliary passive verb, as in "R got a lot of work done"
told = auxiliary passive verb, as in "R just got told the coolest thing about himself!"

Hope others help you understand it better.
