A phrase based on the old Atari video game, Donkey Kong wherein a gorilla throws barrels.
It's used to make a threat in jest- it adds levity and is obviously not a real threat by the way of its absolutely ridiculous nature.
After all, it's not like you're actually going to throw barrels at someone.
"I'd like to see you win this round of pool!"
"Just wait- I'll bring it on like Donkey Kong!"
