It is the superlative of whatever we are referring too.  We use it in colloquial speech and has a funny or sarcastic tone.

For example you may want to say that somebody is boring to the highest degree, that it is not possible to find another person who is more boring.  You would say:
"Πιο βαρετός πεθαίνεις."

Some more examples:

Πιο Cool... «Πεθαίνεις»..!

Πιο Γκαντέμης...Πεθαίνεις  (Γκαντέμης, a colloquial expression for "unlucky") :
