lol, ive never head a british person say that.
Really? British kids like saying it... One example would be Ron from Harry Potter. "Wicked!" is a regular word in his dialogue.

Doesn't sugoi become sugoku in those cases?
It should do but I usually hear people say sugoi + adjective, you can still say sugoku + adjective but I hear sugoi + adjective all the time.
This raises a good question. Is sugoi + adjective gramatically sound or is it a colloquial phrase with gramatic holes ie like "John and me" instead of "John and I". Can anyone shed any light on this?
