Bridge somebody

Hi Friends,
Does "bridge somebody" equal to "pull the strings"?
Could you tell me if "bridge somebody" is correct for native speaker?
For example: I want to help my friend do something and pull the strings for him.
Can I say" I will bridge you"?
Thanks heaps,

Jimmy

    And you have heard "I would like to fill it. Will you bridge me?" or "I will bridge you" ?

    It's not familiar to me at all.

    We say "I'll hook you up" or "I'll put in a good word for you" or "I'll make some calls" or the old standby, "I'll pull a few strings."
