He can watch me clean the car.
In this sentence, the pronoun me is used as the object of the verb watch. But isn't me also acting as the subject of the verb 'clean' and therefore should be I instead? Obviously 'he can watch me clean the car' sounds correct but why is it this way? Is there a rule that governs this?

However, that question is clearly about whether to use an infinitive or a gerund-participle form after the verb hear. This question is as described above. It is about the function of the pronoun me in sentences like the one described.
