I hear it that way from time to time. Kate Jackson (I think that's her name, anyway), the former Charlie's Angel from the '70s TV series, says it that way in TV commercials for Lincoln Mercury, for example. (I assume the commercials are broadcast nation wide, but I have no way of knowing for sure.)
