Help me help my friend learn how to say 'antithesis.'

My friend mispronounces 'antithesis.' I've let it go too long. I need to find movies, television shows, songs, or some other audio media that I can recommend to him (on artistic merit alone) that will covertly expose him to the correct pronunciation. Little help?

You know exactly how he's saying it. And it burns. Bad. I let it go the first few times out of genuine shock and pity, but, yeah, also some avoidance. Now it's too late to just correct him, but I feel morally responsible to help, especially as he seems likely to drop it in a work meeting or something important like that. Can anyone think of any movies or whatever I can recommend that feature the correct use?
Thanks in advance; askmefi is truly the anti-thesis of an unhelpful community.
