I read it on an italian forum and i'm wondering if this is really true, because in this case it's not only english to contaminate italian language but also the contrary (well that slang is more "napolitan" than italian but ... ).
Pretty common phrase, but usually by smarmy types trying to appear clever. Unconvincingly...much the same way "Ciao!" gets passed around.
