: "DO IT!" said in an exceptionally stupid masculine voice. It seems to be getting used a lot and I've heard it in America and England. But where does it come from? It has to be a film.

Sounds like a hi-tech TV commercial tag line to me. Here in the U.S., the Nextel cell phone company's tag line is "Done." And the Nike foot-technology company has long used "Just do it" as their tag line, so this may have evolved as a shortened version of that.
